squeaky squeaky

mice have come and pillaged
things we bought in cardboard boxes
things that came in plastic bags
they left us gifts that are obnoxious
mice are cute, but what a drag
jody closed the bathroom door
and stepped into the shower
then squeaky squeaky freaked her out
and she cowered for over an hour
her terrified screams
shook the house beams
and we’re sure the whole
neighborhood heard her
please jody be calm
said her big brother tom
mice are too timid for murder
when tom burst into the bathroom
to end the entire affair
the little mouse had vanished
through a hole that wasn’t there
