Some shriek and stand on chairs at sight of mice
The furry little creatures who are pests.
They sneak into a house by rude device
And make themselves at home, unwelcomed guests.

They make their visits known by leaving trails,
By nasty nibbles gnawed from stolen snacks
And both, when found, provoke small bitter wails
Because invaders made their vile attacks.

They may be mice, but morals like a rat
Make thieves the mate of the barbarian.
They, selfish, leave you lean while getting fat.
A thoughtless animal that steals from man.

A human thief is somewhat like a mouse;
He likewise thinks free lunch is on the house.
