Convict Cartoon ~ illustration by Patrice


Another mouse
Inside the house
Caught by just his tail
Tried to run
That son of a gun
But the clatter left a trail.

Caught like a rat
In a trap
How could I let him go?
That I did
Outside in the cold blue snow
I did, I really did let him go.

If he lives is up to him
For it’s not
For me to know
I just let a mouse
That was in the house
I just let him go.

So if you see a mouse
With tape upon his tail
He is the one I did let go!
