Conspiring as often underworld dwellers
Will, they’ve since vacated, but not before
The Pest Control fellow, brawny and inbred,
Had a word of offering on their ilk:
When deviated from routine, cannibalism
Often ensues, starting with the dominant
Male.  Do you think maybe, I smiled, we
Have much to learn from them?  Other
Than what we don’t already know, of
Course.  Pest Control hitched up his pants,
His face a rhomboid of rectitude, said:
I checked the traps, and found nothing.
