The Hunt

Three sly foxes

Slinking towards their prey

Timid little mouse

Trembling in its way


Swish of the tails

Mischief in the eyes

They move in

Ready to surprise


Thinking they're so clever

Thinking they know what's right

How do they know

If they'll be safe tonight?


Sneaking closer to the prey

Sneaking up on the mouse

Unbidden by their fury

They ravage the mouse's house


Sullen is the mouse

As she sees her home

She'll get those evil foxes

They will leave her alone


Timid little mouse

On whom they laid the blame

Foxes lay dead

Mouse has won the game
