Title: Him smell a rat.

"I and I can smell a rat,"
interjects Winston;
but me pay scant attention
for him always coming out with that.
" Hey,listen what I say youth,
sniff right there,smell a rat."
So me kneel and smell,
but just earth and grass.
Winston say that the smell of rat
is the same as wet tarmac.
And,it was Bob who taught him that.
But Bob is long time gone,
to Borneo,
to check out a place in the jungle,
to see if orphaned apes could live there,
or thrive in it up there,
I can't remember now which it is.
But the point is,
Bob don't have to face no consequence
of what him start with Winston.
Sometime Winston can smell a rat
when we is driving home y'know,
in the car,with the windows all closed up.
"No,that's wet tarmac,"I say to him.
"Remember,it has to work out both ways."
"No way,"says Winston.
"That was rat.I could smell a rat for sure."
