From ...And The Mouse Police Never Sleeps:
- "Maharjan, black with steel-green eye
- swishing through the rye grass
- with thoughts of mouse-and-apple pie.
- Tail balancing at half-mast. "
- "Look out, little furry folk!
- He's the all-night working cat.
- Eats but one in every ten
- leaves the others on the mat. "
