The rat man calleth;
He will kill the suckers dead.
With so little pain.

Rat man tells me, "This
has been going on for years.
It is not your fault."

"Oh, rat man," I say,
"I love you more than I love
sweet baby jesus."

I hang up, feeling
rescued by my gallant knight
with bait pellets and death fog.

I am becoming
enamored of the haiku--
its five-seven-five.

A Haiku

A reader wishes
That you ran some ads as well
Pretty, clickable ads

Glad to hear the rats are gone!

Bait pellets and death fog
often underestimated
as a key to bliss

A love for rat man
more than for baby Jesus
makes me laugh and laugh.

Did not know what was missing
Glad to be back here.
