Birds are beautiful creatures,
Such delicate wings, such dainty features,
Now compare that to a rat.
Sniffling, snuffling, around on the ground,
Nobody said, "Wouldn't you rather be a bird?"
But, alas, their squeak is too small to be heard.

The author's comments:
The Rat's Complaint just popped into my head one day when I was playing with my brothers. I also wrote it to show that, no matter how much we wish it, we cannot be somebody else.
