A Twist on Three Blind Mice

They swaggered in, a vicious gang of three,
with gangsta shades and plastic canes of white,
it's doubtful that they really couldn't see,
they ran too fast to suffer lack of sight!

A scam to beg donations at the farm,
they went too far and chased the farmer's spouse,
she ran into the kitchen in alarm
to find a weapon suitable for mouse.

A carving knife looked good, all shiny clean,
and razor sharp - she'd had it honed last week,
she turned to face the mice, her eyes turned mean,
and suddenly there came a triple "Eeeek!"

The gang was fortunate, her aim was poor,
so only tails were left upon the floor.

After reading Romeo and Juliet in my english class we had to write sonnets, and this was mine.
