Rats in the garden rummaging around
Watching from the window don’t make a sound
Ravaging the dustbins in amongst the grass
Quick as lightening horrible and crass.
Always in numbers defence from the foe
Rotting shit and fungus swallow as you go
Breeding amongst us, no one needs to know
Leave the food and run fast before the fatal blow.
Black Rats, Brown Rats, always on the run
Hopping round your garden having lots of fun
King Rats, Monster Rats, killing innocent frogs
Hunting in large packs avoiding cats and dogs.
What an awesome creature see those jet black eyes
Fury warm and screecher they take you by surprise
Chewing through your cables with their claw like teeth
Up the chairs and tables causing endless grief.
Grab him by the tail you must avoid the bite
Confuse him and derail blind him with the light
Dull the noise of screaming don’t embrace the thrill
Stop the flow of bleeding there is no need to kill.
Rats in the garden furrowing down
Well away from danger always safe and sound.
