The little urchins crept
Around the cottage, late at night
And scavenged what they could;
Such morsels, scraps and crumbs
As they could find.
And in the morning
Uncle Eric, knowing wink,
Would smile “There seems to be
A two-legged mouse around the house.”

And in the future, then,
When round the Twitter, late at night
A little morsel ran around
And scavenged what he could
Of human interaction
@JanineHJones would say
“There goes a little two-legged @NortonMouse”
And she would love him
Just as much for being bald.
