Mouse

I have a mouse
Inside my house
Big and grey
I am the prey

Long and large
It is in charge
Out to play
I am the prey

But I’m told
The mouse is old
Try and stay
You are not prey

I stay up late
I lie in wait
Night and day
I am not prey

I hear a creak
A curdled shriek
I crouch and pray
I am not prey

A looming shape
With no escape
For cat today
That mouse was prey
