Cat and Mouse


No pointy ears, no furry tail
and yet we’re playing cat and mouse
dear, we’ve been playing all day long
this “hide and squeak” around the house

The plain old game is all we have
as tails go sweeping on the floor
the hiding spots are running out
but we both know we’ll find some more

At first I wondered – who’s the cat?
But now it’s really all the same
I am too tired, it’s a draw
I wish we’d play a different game

So yet again I watch you leave
but as you do, pops in this thought –
do real mice too work hard to hide
their secret wish of getting caught?
