Orkin electronic mouse trap

The batt’ry had long since run dead
In the trap ‘neath the mistress’ bed.
But a mouse had been zapped,
All its synapses snapped,
And some flies had devoured its head.

What the dame didn’t know was those flies
Laid their eggs in its flesh when it died.
And the maggots that fested in
The rodent’s intestines
Shed their cases. Disgusting—no lie.

When another was seen by the cat
The mistress had quite ‘nuf of that.
She retrieved the devise
Fainting dead. Cold as ice
At the carcass, a shriveled hazmat.

It Happens

There was an intelligent ghoul
who topped all her classes at school.
She memorised books
on spooks, rooks and cooks
But fell for the dumb April fool.

Gorgon's Coiffure

Medusa bought a platinum wig;
she curled and sprayed it up, big.
Sometimes though a snake,
would wriggle and shake
the blonde locks around in a jig.
