Yet another tale of the Laundry Hampster
It was late at night,
about a quarter to one.
The Laundry Hampster was bored,
all its chores were done.
It had finished hiding car keys,
and muddying up the hall.
It had even put paw prints,
on the cieling and the wall.
It had set the computer,
to recieve nothing but spam.
and had made a sandwich,
of left sock and ham.
So it got an idea in its fuzzy head,
to cause mischief outside, in the yard and in the shed.
It left the back door open as it ran into the yard,
(not before hiding the only credit card).
There was much to do there in the yard,
and ideas came into its head.
It started with the job at hand,
and planted weeds in the flower bed.
It put paw prints on the new washed car,
and hid the hoe and rake.
In the place where the spare key was,
it put a rubber snake.
It hopped up to the power tools,
and hid all the sockets and nails.
It tied the garden hose into knots,
and added rust to the pails.
It scampered to the front,
and put a spiderweb by the door.
It dumped over a paintbucket by the porch,
and left hampster tracks on the floor.
It finished its work with a happy smile,
and went back into its place.
Happy with the mess it caused,
It fell asleep with a smile on its face.
