Of mice and rice

It wasn’t very nice,
When I reached for the rice,
To find that some mice,
Had been eating said rice.

I could see that those mice,
Had stolen my rice,
Not once but twice,
Now that’s just not nice.

So here’s my advice,
To those rice-eating mice,
Stay away from my rice,
Or pay the ultimate price.

By the way,
I hear heaven is nice,
For rice-eating mice.
