    On Church Lane my mother Muriel
    Loved cooking cauliflower but hated rats
    That played hide-and-seek,
    Running In the walls and halls of her kitchen
    Without her permission – a Revolutionary War
    House baited with traps and Mom
    Jumping on tables and chairs yelling for Dad
    And my best friend, Ted, to send the scary
    Brown Scamps to Sao Paolo – far away from
    Church Lane where she lived in dread
    Until the 1,000,000 brown soldiers were dead.
