A BLOODLESS COUP,THEY CALLED IT:

A MAN MOVED INTO HIS SMALL BUT WARM ROOM
HE NEVER HAD A LOT BUT HE ALWAYS COOKED A DECENT MEAL
WHAT WERE HIS LEFT OVERS ATTRACTED MANY
MANY WHO CALLED IT FOOD,NOT TRASH.
A BATTALION OF RATS MOVED IN TOO
AND BECAUSE IT WAS A SMALL ROOM,
HE COULD NEVER GET THEM,BUT IT WAS OKAY
HE WAS WILLING TO SHARE THE CRUMBS AND THE WARMTH.
BUT THEY MULTIPLIED AND BECAME TOO MANY
THEY STARTED FIGHTING FOR HIS FOOD AND BED.
HE HATED WHAT WAS HAPPENING BUT HE WAS WEAK
WEAK AGAINST THE NOW STRONG AND HEALTHY RATS
WRINKLES FORMED ON HIS FOREHEAD,
HE TRIED TRAPS,HE TRIED POISON
BUT HIS WRINKLES ONLY GREW DEEPER
THEY NIBBLED AT HIS TOES AND FINGERS..
WITH DEEP WRINKLES AND A BENT BACK HE RAN AWAY
HE ENDED UP LIVING OUTSIDE HIS HOME
IN THE RAIN AND COLD.
THEY CALLED IT A BLOODLESS COUP.
