Exterminator (Disturbanator)

To take a life
Infanticide, it’s OK
They’re just mice

I found the bundle with a start
Mama tried to save one
Off with a dart

The other three fell to the floor
Sharp knife to spines open
Their last door

Mom easily drawn into a trap
She meets the same fate
But that’s not a wrap

One more to find
To finish the deed
One more cut, last one to bleed
