Tap tap, black rat,
You’ll have to do better.
It’s hidden - not hot. And I only ever
Show those that need to know,
And I need them to know every letter
No traps, black rat,
There’s no paper trail.
It’s locked up inside and it’s not yet on sale
Slow and forever, my masterpiece never
Not a full stop to chew,
Not a hyphen to bite right through.
