One way to clean out a rats' nest

the yellow rat

by Cass Carlton

In the shed one morning I found my stash of school poetry books had become a nest for a female rat and her brood of rat pups. Books were ruined I swore vengeance.. we caught a large, male rat and dipped it in yellow paint. Then I let it go. That rat terrified them They ran in all directions to avoid him. They were all gone by next morning. Good Riddance.
