The Mouse

We have a mouse in the house. Not an average mouse But rather a mouse with some nous That trips traps as it goes traipsing through the house. A mouse whose downfall I am planning Even while I am jotting. A foolproof trap I will find, Before I go out of my mind. It will be one of a kind, That will attest to my state of mind. And show beyond doubt that I have more nous Than a mouse. It will send a message to all mouse kind That it is time to leave this city behind In case I lose my nous And sacrifice the house to get rid of a mouse.

Fair point. Our most recent cat Bella got run over. Not quite ready to replace her. She was a good mouser and fast. Also had plenty of nous. May have a rethink. Thanks for feedback. My book on state of childcare in NZ is now soup classifieds. sample chapter on link as preview. David

Thanks. Fortunate we have no real larger pests here unless you count drunks and drugees. Police got a few good busts though. Hope you are well. Keep having fun with words. Cheap amusement. David

You know the saying," Invent a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door". Love the humor!
