Rats jump ship

Rats-sinking-shipSIMON DAVIDSON

Rats are cunning and clever,
Knowing the game of life,
In their lives always as ever.

Rats are omnivores, but do prefer,
Meat when they can get it.
But their eating habits differ.

Rats usually stick in groups, or packs.
Can be dangerous creatures.
Oft’n make dens in ships’ decks.

They know ships carry mortals’ meats,
For good eating, they eagerly hope,
As thieves hope for gold in their robbing feats.

They search every deck, they seek their prey,
Racing and scrambling a meal,
Other poor creatures just bray, or pray.

And the only time they take flight,
Is when the ship founders
They go quickly in the night,
Bad friends, rotten rats, bounders.
