tappitbrotherspoem #1

some NPR listeners loath click ‘n’ clack
but I love ’em they’re such smart guys
MIT PhDs and from a fair city I once
lived in and the cars they know so much
about get into such ridiculous brouhahas
we had one once worthy of the program
we were driving through desert nevada
camped late at night at an oasis where
the whole place was lit up with bright
little eyes next morning driving away
we heard the pitter patter of many feet
overhead no nothing on top of our old
chevy we drove on more pitter patter
could it be? yes, mice had sneaked thru
rust holes into our goodies-laden trunk
and were now playing tag between the
cloth ceiling and metal roof no getting
rid of them we had to drive ninety miles
before coming to a crossroads where
we could buy mousetraps and cheese
can’t you just hear tom and ray laffin?
