Mousetrap Destruction Brigade

I wrote this story a few years ago, but I still think it’s funny.


Once upon a time

There were five little mice

Working hard for cheese and rice

Serving in the Mousetrap Destruction Brigade

Allowing all mice to live to an old age

Timesheets were due on Thursday

If they wanted food on payday

One mouse ignored this rule

On payday he felt like a fool

For he had no food and was starving

He took cheese from a trap they were disarming

I am sad to say

The mouse died that day

However, since that date

Not one timesheet has been late
