Mouse Balls Empty Mouse Balls

A young owl asked of more senior, wizened old owls,
“Don’t you just hate it when you cough up a mouse ball?”
“Considering the alternatives,” said one. “How’s
About we don’t,” asked another. “Don’t you recall,”

A third old owl with no “t” in his hoot asks, “who
First learned that it was alright to regurgitate?
After all, not all of the mouse is good for you.
The bones, teeth, and fur you may wish to defecate…

“Somehow, sometimes, Nature reveals another plan,
Old owls coughing up mouse balls as analogy
Grown from hyperbole and witty sleight of hand,
Which wields the pen and the poet’s cosmology…”

“Burp,” the young owl issued aloud, and said, “Good mouse…
Belch, retch… Even tastes good coming back up with sauce.”
