Look, Harold! Gingersnaps!

We shall eat them all, Marguerite. A ginger feast.

Arrr! I can't get through!
Arrr! This plastic is too tough!

Never mind that. Gingersnaps are not for tyrannosaurs anyway.
Yeah. Ferocious carnivores like us need meat!

Aha! The mountain of steak!
It shall not escape us this time.

Let's get it!
It's looking at me.
It doesn't seem very worried yet.
Heh heh heh. Prepare to feast!

Did you hear something?
I think I feel hot, fetid breath on my back.
The mountain of steak is smirking.


Run for it!!!!!

Oof, that was close.
I think there was some kibble left in the kitchen.
I hate kibble.

So starve.
Ah, finally. Now maybe a cat can get some sleep around here.

Once upon a time there were three house rats, trying to hide from the ferocious beasts who wanted to eat them up.
The first sweet and juicy rat found a cat in the box, so he built a house out of pillows.
The strong and toothy tyrannosaur raised an awful ruckus,
and blew that house right over.
The second succulent, tender and tasty rat built his house out of comic books.
But the tyrannosaur roared and snuffed and snapped that rat right up.
The third plump exquisite rat found a laundry basket for a house.
and the big bad tyrannosaur huffed and puffed but couldn't get in.
But Daaaaaaad! We're huuuuungry!
Don't you worry about that. I've set a little trap...
The wormhole is here for other Poetry Bus rides this week!

Just to reassure you

Marianne the Chicken here would like it to be known that, should Maurice ever get lost or lose his stuffing or become unpink or suffer a terrible accident or something, that she is ready to take over.
Being a chicken, she can fly without the aid of a cape.
And land on her butt, not on her nose.
Qualification enough?
