Watching eyes:
one red, the other black.
Growing anxious,
waiting for her snack.

Patiently sitting,
watching me near.
Chattering her teeth now,
what a dear.

Open the door,
reach inside.
She climbs up my arm,
without her I could have died.

The best pet of all,
in my opinion at least.
But to many a people,
this rodent is a beast.

You’re loyal and true,
cunning and pretty.
Sweet and gently,
and downright witty.

People have their,
hamsters and dogs.
Their horses and cats,
parrots and frogs.

I’d bet you’d win them,
if put to the test.
There is no doubt about it,
rats are the best.
