RATS!

By Clancy O’Lafferty

Creep into the barn

Hear the rustle?

Wiry legs, claws and muscle

Kick and dig in moldy straw

A tail protrudes pink and raw

Now turn around but slowly

SLOWLY

Liquid, beady eyes stare boldly

Over long incisors bared

Now, comes the chill of dank barn air

To kiss your shoulders

And caress your stiffening hair

Ha ha! Creeped you our eh Lassies?
