Ravenous Rats Capture Our Caverns

Ravenous rats in our lives Determined to nibble the nipples Stabbed by knives Cutting tenuous triples in ripples Undulating and ululating In horror At the humiliating and excruciating Error and terror Erstwhile partners and associates Commit or omit To implicate affiliates Whose remit Captures, raptures and sutures caverns Embedded deep within bowels, dowels, towels, trowels and vowels of the Earth Away from testing and truculent taverns Where felt, unleashed wrath Against ravages rodents havoc wreak In the calm we covet Even when we struggle up the creek And services of a vet We seek, click and tweak In our endeavor To kick, tick and stick Into the peace favour and flavor Singled out as the linchpin Enmeshed In a twin pin whose sapience spin Bashed, crushed, slashed and trashed In burrows dug by ravenous rodents Ferocious and noxious Whose complicit correspondents In spite of behavior fractious Slump and succumb To energies injected in the strategy Ensuring ravenous rodents run numb As triumphant emerge our deployed and employed synergy.
