Charles Atlas Kit

Charles Atlas Kit

A Chapter by Dave Brown



Little mouse scurries cross floor

Looking to squeeze under a door

Man in chair, reading book

Sends to mouse, a dirty look

Book flies across room

Mouse avoids resulting boom

But as has been done for ever’s ages

Knowledge is found on those pages

Observant mouse sees Charles Atlas kit

About growing muscles using it

And learns by reading on that page

Muscles can be enlarged at any age


Slipping successfully away, 

Mouse orders muscle kit that day

Guaranteed to arrive within a week

Guaranteeing he’ll be no longer weak

Allowing him to present to nasty man

About an improved, cheese sharing plan


One week later with postman at door

Mouse sets to scurry cross floor

But while reaching for front door keys

He smells some yummy yum cheese

Muscles are nice but cheese is betta

Foolish fuzzy redirects towards Feta

What with him just a simple chap

Mouse rushes straight into trap

Which goes “SNAP”
