"Gough, an island in the South Pacific, was overrun by gangs of gigantic mice that attack and eat baby albatrosses; bird conservation groups planned to airdrop tons of poison onto the island." (From Harper's Weekly.)
Whether to use lettuce or cheese,
When trapping rats, mice, and such vermin?
You'll make your decision with ease,
Once you sit down and determine
How much you should fatten them
Before you flatten them.
