D’you know,
The mouse thought finally,
I’ve had enough of cheese,
I’m going to change my diet
And I’ll eat just what I please.

And scampering
Quite dangerously
Across the kitchen floor,
He dived head first
Into the bin
That stood beside the door.

Oh joy! Oh bliss!
What tastes he found
Such food should serve a king.
Not langulish rotting,
Just a bit,
In some black plastic bin.

He had to tell,
He had to share this bounty
With them all,
And soon the mice from all around
Came to his eager call.

But such nirvana could not last,
The humans saw to that,
And the last thing happy mouse saw,
Was the jaws of a smiling cat.
