Capture and Release

The pest control professionals
Patrolling in D.C.
Must capture rats with humane means,
Before they set them free.

Which may explain why Washington
Has seen a sharp increase,
In numbers of the animals
They capture and release.

Virginians think the recent law
Will make their state a base,
Where pest control professionals
Will dump the rodent race.

Their brave Attorney General
Has made a sacred vow,
To fight the law that makes the rat
The District’s sacred cow.

But for myself, the brave A.G.
Is just a little late,
For scores of politicians make
Their home within his state.

And if he wants to make a stand,
I think a better route,
Would be to mobilize the vote –
And throw the varmints out.

  1. I support the humane way of catching rodents. Although the release part should guarantee that they can't return to the city.
