Seal the door
The wood door, it seems, has backfired in its use.©10/03/2012 Carol Welch
No longer do we put the wood chunks in,
some furry little creatures bode abuse.
The actions they intend would be a sin.
They like to find a space through which to squeeze
attempting to pollute, the contents there.
Would sympathy give entrance, lest they freeze?
Or take a stand of action and beware.
No shredding of our clothes is any good,
or leaving calling cards of smell and stain.
We're horrified at thoughts of germ-filled food,
and toothmarks on our woodwork we disdain.
Accepted, they have whiskers cute, neat ears,
and eyes that shine like little onyx beads,
we do not need grey "anything-but-dears,"
to fill, upon our goods, their messy needs.
Enough consideration for the pest.
Take action; stop defiling of our pad.
Seal any crevice he'd explore and test.
Let nature just provide his habitat.
And, that's that!
