EMIL CATT’S BOUNTY aka They Now Have Names

He brought another mouse (Fat)
into the house
and like the other (Speedy)
a few days back
it ran straight to the bookshelf
to hide
except this one was fatter
so it could not squeeze
between the books
and it could not run
very fast
so I grabbed a plastic bucket
turned upside down to capture it
then slid the bucket to the door
lifted it
but Fat would not go out
so I tricked it back into the bucket
then flung it
where it stayed
in the grass
while Emil yowled
