Herman the rat woke up from his nap
Now he is up taking a sniff
I think he hears me in the kitchen
Chopping up a carrot for him
He knows that later on
He will get a slice of tomato
Wednesday has always been
Carrot and tomato day
After his curiosity
He will go back to his nap
Herman brightens the day for me
That is why Wednesday
Is carrot and tomato day

Why a rat?
It freaks me out.
I never liked rats.
Why not a cat?
Without a doubt.

You are the poet,
Great to read, even if you write about rats.

Cheers :)

I love animals. Period. And, I think most animals can become loveable. Even rats.

And, when you love your rat like a pet dog or a cat, then you have special days like carrot and tomato day!

P.S. Thanks for stopping by, Moses.
