I, Mouse (Redux)

I am just a mouse
But cross me at your own risk
Quiet but deadly
Persistent as a toothache
Scritch, scritch, I'll gnaw down your walls

Haha! Great response to the prompt, LM. I imagine the tiny shrew: fiercest creature in the animal kingdom.

Boy - I'd not want to cross a squeaky irritant - I know how bad toothache can get!!!

Wouldn't dream of crossing you, dear. Just a mouse or no.
