Dead mice stink!
Droppings gag me, urine ruins antique lace in drawers,
Tiny Claws spin embroidery thread into kaleidoscope nests.
Chocolate intended for Christmas fudge nibbled through;
Holiday wrapping paper nibbled too.
Daily I shudder to check Ten traps!
Dread finding despised furry (once thought cute) creatures.
Spend Hours cleaning every cupboard, drawer, nook and cranny.
Grocery woes: Fresh Fruit and Vegetables…
Rotten raspberry taints box,
moldy blueberry infects pint,
brown bananas leak on counter
Reeking potato ruins bag and dinner
Spend Hours cleaning refrigerator, drawers
Christmas Eve thief prowls neighborhood
wields secret key remote, searching for victims
Daughter’s car chosen
Hand made, carefully chosen gifts
clothes for kids, parents, grandparents
Spend hours cleaning out Anger, fear, violation, disgust
News headlines: Planes downed by storms
Police shot by thugs. Thugs shot by police.
Terrorists set free to kill again. Christians martyred.
Children killed by crazed “caretakers”
Babies boiled by ex-boyfriends in bathtubs
Girls bought and sold for X
Women beaten by “lovers”
Drug addicts confess theft, homelessness, abuse…
one, two, ten times in treatment
Spend hours thinking God forgives, supernaturally heals
but some things are just rotten.
