Incredible Edible!

A story in very few words!


Can't you see! I'm a hungry moth!
Can't you see! I'm full of wrath!
I don't want you!
Just your coat of blue!
It's made of very edible cloth!

('The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse')

Town Mouse? Sophisticated.
Country Mouse? Addle-pated!
T.M. tries a rural retreat;
Finds the city's hard to beat.
C.M. takes a trip to town;
Finds the traffic gets him down.
Moral? Stick with what you've got.
Be happy in your chosen spot.
And if you want the story longer
You'll have to make the plot much stronger!

Excellent microfiction, Brenda. And I like the mouse poem, too, especially the last two lines. :)

very funny, love the rhyming. I wasn't expecting the edible cloth. Very nicely written.

Excellent - I hadn't thought of the destructive tendency of moths.
I love the tale of two mice, too - very neat :-)

I had not thought of the moth's favorite meal, great take on that angle! :>
