There are two new souls in my big house
There’s my wonderful boy and there’s his Mr Mouse
It’s perfect they’ve come together
It’s fantastic to share the joy
Because all those years ago
That Alfie was brought here by Boy.
He turned up one day after school
When Boy was just about ten
And now 19 years later
They’re together once again.
One’s here to sit out Covid
In his mum’s big big house
One’s here to try his luck
With she we call Mrs Mouse.
They’ve both found a welcome refuge
They’re both happy as can be
There’s joy and food and wellbeing
And there’s a very happy me.
I saw Mrs Mouse on the weekend
In a highly excited state
I think she was getting ready
For a very special date.
I’d heard Mr Mouse, that’s Alfie
With her daughter, having a chat
I heard the word betrothal
And I thought, well finally that’s that!
Then I spied them out in the veggie patch
A long walk just before dark
Returning arm in arm
I thought he’d made his mark.
Her eyes were sparkling as they should
For a girl who’s met her match
And the ring around her paw
Was not found in the veggie patch.
Our Alfie had made an effort
To capture our Mrs Mouse
And soon there’ll be a wedding
In the big big country house.
With huge thanks again to the talented @rozi_clarkeartist for the wonderful drawing.
