Half-Mouse

Half-Mouse came to visit;
‘Twas the half without the brain.
He showed up worse for wear,
Looking past the point of pain.
Half-Mouse came to visit;
‘Twas the half that had the tail.
But missing all his mind,
The visit was a fail.
It does not really matter
Whichever mouse half is it,
You’ll never hear him chatter
When Half-Mouse comes to visit.
