‘Twas not quite close to Christmas,
still nothing was stirring,
‘cept that blanket lump that was obviously a mouse.
I silently crept closer to further observe,
this mammalian invader,
for which I would soon self-serve.
It’s gyrations from left to right,
seemed senseless yet frantic,
I couldn’t help but wonder the motive of its plight.
I stared in awe at this creature,
hypnotized by the dance,
It was more entertaining than a double feature.
I finally broke away my gaze,
to steal under the blanket,
to better stalk my prey.
Just as I was about to pounce on my prey,
my owner let out such a shout,
from under the blanket I did scurry away.
When I dared look back,
not a lump could be found,
just my human ready to attack.
I can only guess,
this tiny invader has somehow,
my human impressed.
This will not do,
I will be diligent next time,
I’ll be watching for you…
