A hungry mouse
lives in my rental house
It - three times, seen
every time, i did scream
I've mprisoned a rapist
and, this is my latest?
with all that I know
pain has taken it's toll
One furry creature
today's flurried feature
Fears can manifest
as fearful minds suggest
Should i kill the mouse
fearfully, in my house?
More afraid than me
how silly can silliness be?
Lock myself in my room
filling myself with doom
Running away with fear
no safe place, over here
One scampering rodent
can play with fears, potent
Better to clear my head
get myself right back to bed!
So many small details ... to fret over.
After decreeing that this 'dreadful' and
most miniscule mouse is surely a lot more afraid
of me, than i am of him!
A whole lotta extra space has been cleared ..
thus, truly illuminating what really needs to be
taken care of ..
Oh, where to begin ..?
h, please don't let me have to take a picture of this furry ball of hunger, that scurries around my
floors, the minute i turn on my light or go near him'her.
I SUPPOSE .. where my fear comes from, is when i used to live in my "first shack," and i could hear
mice, scratching inside my walls, as i attempted to sleep.
Every morn, for a while, i would find bald baby mice, in my kitchen sink. I would suffocate them with
glas jars, Soon after, to load into my mom's old beaten-up roasting pan, to toss into the empty field,
outside my bedroom window.
Later, my wise old Great Aunt Thelma, balled me out for throwing away 'that perfectly good" roasting pan.
Not too long after this chain of events, i was raped in my tiny bathroom, in the same insane hovel that i called a home. Afterwards, I was soon broken into .. and decided, to wisely move.
A mere 6 months later, i was raped at knifepoint by the same insane 'friend' whom threatened to kill me if i ever told.
So, you can see how mice and rape are tied-in as one, for me.
At least i kept the paroled child/murderer rapist, in jail, after his dirty deeds done unto me, for almost 30 years,
Until his recent death, behind the bars ... a mere 3 or so life-affirming years ago.
So, i may consider myself my own personal hero 'on one front.'
And, console myself with the fact that one mouse may be allowed to 'get safely away.'
