A moment of levity

On a tip from C-90-RI in the GBC, I was pointed to this story of poisoned mouse corpses being used to try to clear out an invasive species of snake in Guam.

Yes, it's dark and probably only funny to me because I haven't slept more than 2 hours straight for 3 nights, but here's what went through my mind after reading that:

Fighting Rodents from the Sky
These are mice, that have already died
100 rats will be dropped today
but only 3 win the furry beret!

With apologies to SSG Barry Sadler

OK - I'm still chuckling at that...

Thank you for the new ear worm! REALLY!

Tiny hearts, still in their chests.
These were once America’s pests.
Hungry snakes went “nom, nom, nom!”
Now their dead, all over Guam.

Okay, I’m sleep deprived, too.

I'm missing a comma. It' been bugging me since 3:28 this morning.

"Tiny hearts, still, in their chests."

And since 3:29 this morning:

No more days spent taunting cats.
No more work as small lab rats.
Best laid schemes gang aft agley,
ask mice or men who wear berets!
