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
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
