I encountered rats twice in my childhood. *Shudders*

Rats!

Krystle Zachary

Rats have such a bad name

They are conjured from filth and darkness

They derived from the mouse, which is not as dreadful,

But can easily become disliked

Over time.

With rats, it's immediate.

Their eyes and pointy nose is high on alert,

Ready to intimidate you.

Their claws and their tail

Are raised high, determined to capture the next victim.

We can't help but scream.

What good are rats for?

They thrive in the blackness

The ugly blackness of heart

Squirms in our unconscious mind

Triggers some type of reminder

That we may feel like WE ARE RATS

Holding dark secrets,

Scrabbling across life with slippery tails,

Munching our thick teeth into helpless flesh

So we scream.

Rats are not heroes in our stories

Like mice are

I wonder if rats will ever have a chance

To clear their bad name.
