Tale of the Rat



the rodent didn't read
epitasis was beyond his ken

he approached the slightly open
door of a chicken wire box

where the aroma of peanut butter
was more than he could bear

blue-green light bathed the snare
in water tones, posterized the bait

he pushed into the trap, unaware
his conclusion had been written





Thanks to Michelle at Poefusion Friday 5 for her prompt words of epitasis, blue green, snare, slightly open, conclusion

Aww...the poor fate of the rat. Enjoyable poem though! "blue-green light bathed the snare in water tones..." Excellent :)

Tumblewords, all I can say is I'm glad I wasn't there to see that rat get entangled in the trap. Another genuine write. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for your comment about my blog. I'm glad you like it. Have a nice day.

loved your 'about me' description!
sometimes we inspire others just by existing... and i think you are doing it quite accurately.
