Then they began to climb on top of each other, carefully but swiftly, until they had formed a pyramid with the largest rat at the top. The rats began to sing, in high, whispery voices, We have teeth and we have tails We have tails we have eyes We were here before you fell You will be here when we rise. It wasn’t a pretty song.
