Ted: The Mouse in my House

The mouse in my house
scatters goat bones beneath the bed,
reads the future in how they lay,
pokes his nose out his Tom and Jerry hole
when the lights go out.

We came to agreement last week:
I'm going to stop giving him goat bones.
In exchange he gets to live on,
find a nice new Tom and Jerry hole
someplace green.
And I don't have to hear him screaming at the glue trap.
