All light died in the old, yellow house that night

The rats, they fed, and their hiss filled the void

It’s not a question of why, but how they ate the boy:

Through nibbling, gnawing and scratching every inch

 

He had fled, fearing the monster giving chase would catch him

He had hid, because he didn’t want to be thrown against the wall again

But the rodents didn’t care, and they devoured him anyway

Rats
