“Two Little Mice” (a poem)

May 5, 2016


.

Two little mice
Swift, soft, furry
Scurry from some recess
Or hidden little nest
In the palace of my mind

Two little mice
Feet padded
Noses pink
Whiskers long
Teeth razor sharp

Two little mice
One called Fear
The other Anxiety
Explore
Every corner
Of the palace of my mind

Two little mice
Play, hide
Tease, fight
And slowly
Slowly conquer
The castle of my mind
.

— Susy Cantwell
