Mortal Mouse

I know you didn’t care
Be it a flat or a house
Just after food or warmth
Cute little mouse

When I saw you in the room
Your heart didn’t skip a beat
As though you were waiting
Glad for us to meet

As I moved near
You didn’t run away
Stopped and lingered
As if you had something to say

I was OK at first
And I didn’t mind
Then I read about you
The things I did find

You carry bacteria and viruses
And I hear you scratch
We can’t be friends
Not a good match

You keep me awake at night
Then there is your poo
I’ve got to mention it
What else can I do?

I should have captured you
And set you free two miles away
But I don’t have time
Have work the next day

So I’m sorry mortal mouse
So sorry that you died
Be happy in mouse heaven
I may have even cried

Here I wish to let my strange and vivid imagination and opinions run wild. I do hope you like what you read. I would love to be a writer, I won't pretend otherwise. Although it is only in the last couple of years that I have realised it. I guess if it meant to happen it will. Happy reading, happier writing. :-)
