My wife is quite brave, but she is scared of mice
A fact so true, that it’s worth saying twice
A comical event could not help but unfold
Making this a story that needs to be told
We were going to turn in. It was late in the night
When my bride got a shock – a terrible fright
Wearing flannel pajamas and ready for bed
Something happened that filled her heart with great dread
Her worst fear came true. There was a mouse in the house!
And he made a beeline straight for my spouse!
She saw him coming and could not help but screech loud
Inside of her PJ leg, the pesky pest plowed!
With dizzying deftness, he scurried up fast
I wondered how long this adventure would last
It was more than my wife could possibly bear
But I knew not to laugh! No, I didn’t dare
Lord have mercy! What a comical sight!
My hysterical bride, horrified by her plight
As the fleet furry fiend continued his climb
My spouse did not hesitate. She wasted no time
An Olympic gymnast, she instantly became
The routine she accomplished was worthy of fame
It began with a hair-raising, heart-stopping cartwheel
Performed to perfection, complete with a squeal
Then into a jaw-dropping high back handspring
But the rambunctious rodent continued to cling
A forward somersault was next on the bill
A spectacular feat! A genuine thrill!
She launched herself high in a steep scissors leap
While screaming some words that I’ll have to bleep
A daring double backflip came down with a plop
And all this was done in PJs and flip-flops!
Utterly spellbound, I stood frozen and amazed
The entire episode had been totally crazed
I could hardly believe what I’d seen with my eyes
I had no idea the girl was so spry!
But by now, the mouse had scampered away
He chose to flee far from this fierce frazzled fray
Silently vanishing while high in midair
Bringing a swift end to my spouse’s nightmare
The torturous tango with a terror so tiny
Had worn out my sweet wife and made her all whiney
But her flannel fiasco had left little chance
That she’d ever forget her PAJAMA PANTS DANCE!!!
