Tip toeing here I am
on Tenterhooks I can easily scram
Afraid I will be caught
pray it was not all for naught!

Creepy is the dark hall
I know I had the gall
But when you have a goal
persistence makes myself cajole

Eyes scanning the dark
quickly looking for a mark
Lo and behold, there’s what I came for!
and my heart soar

Quickly jumping on the table
I ate the fish without preamble
Without realizing the resident watcher
It leaped on me and I hurriedly scamper
