“I’m free!  I’m free!” called Marcus Mouse

    And ran out through the door,

For being Jamie’s small pet mouse

   Was rather dull, for sure.

 

“I’m free!  I’m free!” he called again.

    “There’s no more cage for me!

I’ve joined the world of other mice.

    And, like them, I am free.”

 

A tabby cat pricked up his ears.

    “A stupid mouse!” he said,

And: “He will make a tasty snack!”

    But Marcus quickly fled.

 

“A snack for him?  I don’t want that,”

    And off he ran at speed,

But in a tree, right overhead,

    Was someone else, indeed.

 

“I’ll quickly catch that little mouse,”

    Said Owl up in the tree.

“He’ll make a really tasty meal

       As all owls would agree.”

 

But Marcus Mouse heard what he said

    And fled back to his home.

“Oh, life’s much safer in my cage,

    And I never more will roam.”
