This is a tale
that has to be told
about a hamster
whose escapes are getting old
for three days,
he's been on the run
hiding from his Mommy
and having a bit of fun
He's stolen the food
left out to entice
and left not a trail -
that just wasn't nice!
Then during dinner
I heard him make a rustling
and the next morn',
the fridge fan was grunting
I thought for sure,
that he'd met his demise
and texted Oma to discard him
to avoid the kids' having a shocking surprise
But more baiting of food
was gone when we arrived
so clearly Happy Hamster
was still very much alive.
A flashlight shown behind the fridge
the scurry of rodent as he quickly hid
pulled out the plugs
and moved the whole big thing
climbed behind and dismantled it!
Screw after screw, my frustration increased
and then Ya shouted, there he is!
Inside the fridge
sitting on the motor
was a fat and content hamster
who'd proved quite a hoarder
Crammed in his cheeks, food pellets were
others were stashed for later treats
the amount he'd collected,
he'd not have gone hungry for weeks
But caught him, we did
and in the cage he sits.
If he gets out again,
that's TOTALLY IT.
