Standing in my kitchen - minding my P’s & Q’s
When suddenly in my peripheral a mouse came into view
It was huge and scary - and running straight at me
Too terrified I froze and could not turn to flee
A noise a shrill as I’d ever heard was ringing in my ears
It seemed to come from all around - adding to my fears
Was this monster screeching and hissing as it ran?
I don’t know how it happened, it certainly was not planned
But I found strength in my limbs and legs
That did NOT match my age
I was now looking down from atop my counter
Only to see the giant trying to take cover
My husband had come in, troubled by the sound
He asked why “I” was screaming and would I please get down?
I told him of the terror and tried to make him see
This was not a simple matter but a great catastrophe
His only words were come on dear “I’ll get the mouse for you!”
And proceeded to chase the beast away – My Hero – Tried & True.
