Bugs and rodents are scary
Even men can't stand them
Spiders and small creeping bugs we can handle pretty well
But once you get to the size of a rodent we all get freaked out.
There's the discovery.
You walk into a room and see a mouse scurry away to hide.
The call goes out to the rest of the family...
"Oh Oh, we have a mouse"
Everyone is in shock "Well what do we do now?"
We all gather round to hear the discovery story and how it scurried away.
And now we're wondering who will be the next one to see it.
What if "it" has a family? Oh No.....An Infestation!
the next day we all saw it run across the room
"It's behind the bookcase!"
Well what do we do?
Everyone looks to Dad for the answer
Here's this little furry animal a few inches long,
the whole family is trying to trap the stupid thing.
Dad pokes at it with broom stick behind the bookcase.
The little guy comes running out the other end
And everyone freaks out running in all directions.
We regroup at the designated emergency meeting spot across the street.
And a war council is called, we've been invaded by aliens
the fight for our homeland is on. It's us or those mice.
Off the Hardware store I go to get our weapons
I've got the mouse traps, the poison
and the latest in trapping technologies
a sticky cardboard paper that you put bait on.
the mouse gets on the cardboard and is
stuck like a fly.
This thing really works.
It took me 5 minutes to get my finger off.
So, two days later,
I'm sitting in the dining room on the computer
When out the corner of my eye something moves.
I turn to see mouse has indeed taken the bait
He's become stuck to the cardboard paper
now he is.........
