No mouse ran along the skirting board.
Various vermin refrained from that
Backdrop, yet ruefully
The cat kept vigilant watch over
The wall. Relentless eyes.
The dog, however, all bright face and
Wagging tail, would break into a chase
At any passing car even though it
Could not abide the harsh taste
