Ranting on Rats

We use rats to study human psychology. Isn't that odd. (Note: Question mark left off intentionally.)

Rats, Rats

Rats are highly intelligent creatures,
though we've mocked them for many a year,
and they've mimicked the worst of our features,
feigning shock to crave food for fake fear.

There's the big black box of education:
of mice and men, then all the more of rats.
There's the darkness of our situation:
a shadowland wherein creep shadowcats.

We live in this shadowland . . . Not in Beulah Land.
