When the feet are helpless.
TRAPPED RAT

Thin rat in the slippery dungeon,
Both without light and companion,
Youโ€™re used to the heat and the smell
Of the dread pit where you dwell.
Crumbs of outside are your sunshine
And your food and precious wine;
When the earthy wall shall get dry,
Aye, your eager legs will fly.
