requiem for a mouse

he cannot resist
the lure of peanut butter

my small opponent

music to my ears
the snap of a wooden trap

soft gray silky fur

his face is so cute
too bad he poops everywhere

a mouse dies tonight

Your small opponent...yes, know this requiem well. Our small opponent died in his trap yesterday and I took a photo of his sad little tail/body hanging out. Then flung him out to his grave between the the fallen autumn leaves. Sigh...

new critters emerge
there is life in these old walls
will I meet them soon?
