The Rat

I saw him in a tree.

His sinew tail hung down.

I looked at him,

And he at me.

His eyes so black,

Teeth dripping with blood.

Sorry, I have just eaten.

What fare?

If you must know

A knight over there.

How did he die?

I don’t really care

This is all wrong!

Just the song of life,

You look for complex answers

To simple questions.

I can feed on a corpse.

Well good for you.

No, child stew on this.
