Extracts from Oswald’s diary

#1 (1951)

It’s not that I dislike the mouse,
you know. It’s just that he
came out of nowhere,
stole my world,
and never thought of me.

#2 (1951)

No-one knows of my frustration.
I wasn’t given alliteration!
I wish my name began with ‘ruh’
or that they’d named him ‘Mortimer’.

#3 (1955)

He has a CLUB now, did you hear?
I see it on TV.
No ‘Rabbitketeers’ in sight, of course.
Just mouse.
All him.
No me.
