"Write a ____ in the ______ poem."
You are counting sheep
in an effort to sleep
when you hear something creep
in your wall's concrete.
Click, click, click of rodent feet
scuttle back and forth, so you leap
out of bed, bang fists on wall–not a peep.
Crawl back to bed, pillows heaped
thinking you will soon be asleep.
Scuttling begins again. You try to keep
your temper in check, but will is weak.
You slam the wall with a bat, and shriek.
