Is the rat offended by the smell of the dump?
before squalor and pestilence and sewers,
Did he love the meadows
and stream banks,
basking in the sun,
chewing grain and berries,
swimming in the glinting waters?
How did he become the symbol of disease?
I don’t believe it was his first job description.
The atrophy of nature’s balance,
and probably no resume´,
knocked him to a bottom rung,
I’d be mean too if I lived in the sewer
or was experimented on in a laboratory.
