Poor Old Grandma

Poor Old Grandma

There was a loud sound
Like a fire cracker burst underground 
below the round mound 

Grandma jumped out of her bed
hearing the raucous
raging at burglars invading her kitchen precious

Grandma flung the swat
thinking that it was a rat 
who knocked kitchen containers flat

Poor old Grandma could not sleep
and she looked for rats who creep
peering in the dark

Grandma tries all means
traps and swats and medicine wraps 
to kill the rats in heaps.

Dear old grandma who told us stories 
and put us to sleep
had to stay awake
