New York City is overrun by rats! And is driving the poor citizens bats. Guv'mint will botch extinction. They ne'er act with distinction. I'd suggest they bring in legions of cats! Robert L. Hinshaw, CMSgt, USAF, Retired (c) 2014 All Rights Reserved

Lovely and witty limerick, Bob. Politicians do not always find it easy to separate rats from they use delaying tactics! Perhaps if the Pied Piper was to be roped in.....// paul
