The Ms. Mabel Story
This festive mouse is named Ms. Mabel.
Though wee she is fabled to be able
to clear the most bedecked of banquet tables.
It is said that with Ms. Mabel in your house,
all food will be gone before one can utter the word “mouse”!
Your pantry shelves will be spotless and clean,
not even the tiniest crumb will be left or seen,
except for the alfalfa sprouts and lima beans,
for these she will politely leave.
Mabel also loves to share.
She carries her favorite finds back to her lair,
where in a hole below the stairs,
she wraps the tidbits with great flair,
and stores them until Christmas with great care.
