the man had tried
every poison and trap possible
but everyday at one
that mouse came back
climbing up the clock
it was taunting him
the little bastard
but he had been down
a similar path before
learned from his past mistakes
he had blinded
the three rats the first time
the flute worked
too well perhaps
but no one wanted to pay
for that scale of an operation
hamelin learned that lesson
the hard way
