The Mouse



SEE THE MOUSE STRUT BOLDLY ON THE STAGE
NEVER A MORE DASHING ROMEO THAN HE
ESPECIALLY SINCE THE OPERA HALL'S DESERTED
THE SHADOWS STAND TALL
AND SILENT IN MEMORY
NO ONE CARES FOR OUR ROMEO FRIEND
NOT EVEN THE NIGHT WATCHMAN
WHO SITS IN THE CORNER
HOLDING THE OLD SCRUB WOMAN'S HAND


FRANK A. VOLLMER
Never one to miss an opportunity, Frank wrote this offering in response to my current plight.

Frank's poem is just perfect! I am sorry you are having mice problems, but the poem is just too cute!
