A Stranger In The House


He’s not a mouse
But similar to a
Visitor in your house

The unseen tremor
As he walks inside
Better known as a stranger
Please don’t wake the child
He only want to
Stay for awhile

His one night stand
The wham, bam then
Thank you ma’am
Only a few
Can understand

Nine mouths later
The cheese is gone
The trap is reset
And placed by the door
Next to the dead rat
laying on the floor

Sniff and scurry
Hem and haw
Look close in
The mirror and
See who you
Truly are

A stranger in your own house

By far


Heaven is at the foot of Mother…
