There is some wisdom to ponder with this one…

A mouse looked through the crack in the wall

to see the farmer and his wife open a package.

“What food might this contain?” The mouse wondered. He was devastated to discover it was a mousetrap.

Retreating to the farmyard,

the mouse proclaimed this warning :

“There is a mousetrap in the house!

There is a mousetrap in the house!”

The chicken clucked and scratched,

raised her head and said, “Mr. Mouse,

I can tell this is a grave concern to you,

but it is of no consequence to me.

I cannot be bothered by it.”

The mouse turned to the pig and told him,

“There is a mousetrap in the house!

There is a mousetrap in the house!”

The pig sympathized, but said,

“I am so very sorry, Mr. Mouse,

but there is nothing I can do about it

but pray..

Be assured you are in my prayers.”

The mouse turned to the cow and said,

“There is a mousetrap in the house!

There is a mousetrap in the house!”

The cow said, “Wow, Mr. Mouse. I’m sorry for you,

but it’s no skin off my nose.”

So, the mouse returned to the house,

head down and dejected,

to face the farmer’s mousetrap

. . . Alone.. . .

That very night

a sound was heard throughout the house
