There is a little man in my mousetrap.
His neck is broken so he cannot move.
But if he were a mouse, would I still feel nothing for him?
What if I caught my dog or your cat?
Would we cry if the pet weren’t ours?
What if I caught a goldfish?
Would I tell a child that toilets are tunnels to goldfish heaven?
If I had many little people in mousetraps, would I be a murderer or conqueror?
It would depend if I killed them for Uncle Sam or myself
Since they would be no one and someone at the same time.
What would happen if the mousetrap caught me?
