You were but inches away

and somehow still ran

this is not my fault,

you know I had a plan.

You would have been mine.

It was only a matter of time,

but you must be in cahoots

with those people, what a crime!

Just as I was about to pounce

and catch myself a mouse

there came the sound of a bag

that filled the whole house

and so I left you behind

just inches from my feet.

Why eat a mouse,

when you can eat a treat?
