The Cat and the Mice

Because his fine house was infested by mice,
The master secured a large cat in a trice,
Which soon made such havoc among the small folk
That those who were left declared it no joke.
The cat became hungry, 'tis said she got thin,
As she tried and she tried the young mice to take in.
The mice were too wise and stayed on the top shelf;
No watching could make even one show himself.
So the cat, feigning death, hung herself on the wall;
But the mice laughed and said: "You don't fool us at all.
Were you stuffed with straw and we all armed with knives,
We'd still recollect that a cat has nine lives."
As you value your life don't ever believe
The tricks of a person you know will deceive.
