THE WHITE RAT

The White Rat

The nick.
The White Rat.
Said the real rat. Your new nick.
Prick said I.
And he was.

But it stuck.
Fuck.
Then I learned.
Embrace to chase.

Yes, that’s the case.
And the chase.
Was on. But I did not see.
Where it would lead.

Led to dead.
Heads.
Smiling.
At the white gerbil.

Would you like some cheese.
Oooh, please.
Would share some, please.
Said the real rat.

Maybe I did.
Maybe not.
I thought.
But he got some.
Before I was awakened.

But I didn’t care.
Cause most rats are stupid.
Except me.
The “White” Rat.
So, there I sat.
Eating a dead cat.

It’s really not that bad.
Or sad.
The only problem?
Gnats.
