A Dog Day or Angel in the House, 1902

The mouse told the cat,
"You're nothing but a rat!"

The cat told the mouse
"You're nothing but a louse!"

***

The two chased each other
Like a bratty sister and brother.

All the while,
The dog on the tile

Watched in wonder
How enemies play without asunder.

***

"Why do you two pursue?"
The dog growled as they passed through.

The mouse and cat answered the dog:
"Who cares! Join us you clog!"

So the dog chased the mouse and cat
And their day ended like that.

All three enemies having fun
While on the run.
