Free Verse for a Dead Mouse

the mouse has left this mortal coil.
i deposited his little corpse in the waste basket
this morning, via snow shovel

(I'm always afraid the rodent will wake up
and attack me in a fit of fear, revenge,
and rabies).

I had nothing to worry about:
his little skull was crushed,
and his beady little blank eyes stared at me.
