Advice from a Rat

Photo by Alexas Fotos on

Stay underground – the lower the better.

Lie in wait.

Come out at night.

Stick to the sides,

watch out for traps.

Be quick on your feet.

Get there first and feast

before they find you.

Retreat in silence,

head down, belly full.

And if that fails,

show them your teeth.
