A Rat

I feel as though I am a rat
Caught in a trap
My eyes bulging
Blood streaming from my nose
And short uneven gasps for
What may be
My last breath
Force my body to tremble
Then my vision slowly blurrs
And in the midst of my despair
Settling around me
Like sand settling
On the ocean floor
There in front of me, I see
Not more than a whisker away
Lay, shining, like the sun
On a cloudy day
The cheese
