Ode to Rats

by yogi73   Jan 9, 2021

Oh! Quarrelsome rat
How they fester and scheme.
Clever and precise
Calculating to the last morsel.
Noble rat how you
Squander in filth.
Is only your exterior
Blackened by the
Grime of the world.
Sociable rat
Your pestilence
Lives on

    I believe they now inhabit every continent on the planet - some even found in Antarctica! They're doing something right...

    All the best

      Perhaps soon enough they will be our overlords? :p
      Thanks, Ben
