Must Be October?

Must Be October?

I made the early autumn circle,

Opening gates and checking fence

Got back home after five days gone,

And things were a little tense

“There’s a pack rat in the garage, 

And you’d better get it killed…

I saw some droppings on the floor,

And the garbage has been spilled.”

So it’s off the barn to grab some traps,

And a piece of stovepipe too,

And I’ll put an end to Mr. Rat

Before the night is through.

The garage must be rodent free

No room for mercy or delay,

300 cases of Girl Guide Cookies,

Arrive next Saturday!

 PS.  I don’t know why, but the old trap in a stovepipe trick, works every time.
