    To keep in the holiday spirit:

    We three mice of blindness are
    Bearing canes we traverse not far
    Wall and basement, attic and kitchen
    Escaping many a car

    O night of wonder, night of no sight
    Save us from that knife bright
    The farmer’s wife, still proceeding
    Before she takes us to heaven’s light

    Born in a litter on America’s plain
    When food is needed we come here again
    Trash and garbage, never ceasing
    Good except for the rain

    Refrain

    Good ears instead have I
    I can sense a blade coming nigh
    A woman’s arm, madly raising
    Rush before the weapon’s too high

    Refrain

    Blood spatters like a red bloom
    Alas! In our misery and gloom
    Our tails have fallen off, we are dying
    Wait for us to go in the tomb

    Refrain

    But when she is gone, we somehow arise
    No longer we’re cat sacrifice
    Alleluia, alleluia
    We exchange gleeful replies

    Refrain

    THE END
