THE RAT CASTRATED two calves yesterday (and branded another two). To commemorate this event, here are the lyrics to "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy."

I heard a Fly buzz—when I died—
The Stillness in the Room
Was like the Stillness in the Air—
Between the Heaves of Storm—
The Eyes around—had wrung them dry—
And Breaths were gathering firm
For that last Onset—when the King
Be witnessed—in the Room—
I willed my Keepsakes—Signed away
What portion of me be
Assignable—and then it was
There interposed a Fly—
With Blue—uncertain stumbling Buzz—
Between the light—and me—
And then the Windows failed—and then
I could not see to see—

TCB HAS ASKED the Rat to note in this space that today, she killed two rabbits (a cottontail sitting, and a jackrabbit on the run).
In memoriam, she here supplies a link to some pictures of Cute, Cute, Adorable, Lovable Little Bunnies.

When you are old and gray and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;
How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;
And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face among a crowd of stars.

If I didn't tell her
I could leave today
On such a winter's day...
