Late at night, I heard it
A rustling came from below
From my bed, I got up
Under my bed, flashlight shone

In a corner I see movement
Surprised, I see shiny eyes
Whatever it is, I don’t know
It begins making hideous cries

I jump back into my bed
Pull the cover over my head
Thoughts of what could happen
Filled my mind with dread

I heard it climb upward
Felt its weight on my bed
I begin to whimper out loud
Will I soon be dead?

Then I heard a loud knock
And a cry, “Open the door!”
It was my brother, Randy
To the door, I quickly tore

Looking fearfully behind me
I opened the door to find
My brother searching everywhere
He was almost out of his mind

“Squeals got out of his cage!”
“I can’t find him anywhere!”
“Have you seen him tonight?
“He has long, brown, stringy hair!

With a mighty sigh of relief
I picked up my baseball bat
Slammed the door, went hunting
For my brother’s escaped pet rat!
