The Rats of New York
From Norway the rats came, a twitching their snouts.
It was the seventeen hundreds, or thereabouts.
The city was picked, to New York they declared.
And for three hundred years, the rat population fared.
Now the department of health, or DOMO for that matter,
For ninety-nine years, they made the rats scatter.
Each year their budget increases, with fresh injections of cash.
Their department now holds.
One hundred and seventy staff.
Their office of pest control, is a proactive show.
They provide rat indexing, to see where the rats go.
The program conducts, a hundred thousand inspections per year.
To show where the rats, are the most severe.
Meanwhile inside and out, the rat population grew thick.
Because the city used bags, not cans for trash, as a cost savings trick.
With a switch, now a 90% reduction in sightings is the claim.
DOMA went forth, spread the word, with an earnest acclaim.
It was with presentations, pamphlets, and information channels,
With staff and experts on community panels.
