The mice

About this: Inspired by one of my favourite episodes of The Outer Limits, The Mice, watch if you can find it, it’s spectacular. It’s a bit iffy, might pay some attention to this one after it’s stewed a while on the back burner


Well I did tinker with it, took about 5 minutes (just goes to show what a little distance can do) still not quite there I think but this one needs simmer a bit.

Do you see mice in un-penitent line?
Head bowed not in obeisance but fear
Men without need and no weakness for tear
Neither remorse when our purpose is crime
Souls as hard as a hide slaked in lime
Yet still hearts stir as the fair one draws near
She harbours light, lit for they that adhere
To the tally that is tendered in time
Of all that be here, alone she chose sight
To see a man not a beggar nor thief
Do his legs still have the strength for that mile?
Slight limbs retain enough vigour for fight?
Can he dare risk to lend birth to belief?
That in this world there is room for his smile
