It’s All About Cheese

25 Oct
Cheese: it's all about cheese.
How can a mouse get fatter than the rest?
it must be ambitious, aggressive, and active,
never veering from its dream of cheese.
even if the prize seems unobtainable
(seeing there is a vulgar cat around)
employing tactics of subterfuge
could mean the difference for
obtaining a fragrant chunk.
mice are only subsistence rodents
unwilling to pay the price
necessary to build a kingdom
infiltrating every other
so the pathway to cheese is one of
total domination like a mob
partnering with underground operatives
arranged to overtake other  
rats & cats who
take supremacy for granted
yawning complacently.
