Hey Rat!

Posted to Poetry




Tiny rat curled up so tight
burrowed long into the night
now tucked safe into your home
dreaming of escape and where you’d roam

I’ve seen you poke your pink rat nose
up into the cage lid holes
If you knew your fate outside
you’d stay tucked and content to hide

he watches you from not too far away
sharpens his claws and continues to pray
that one day you’ll make it out
and discover what the food chain is all about.
