“Pulling Habits Out of Rats” by Todd-Michael St. Pierre


I'm no genie or Houdini,
I'm The Famous Rob Kabob.
Hocus-pocus I must focus,
I must think to do my job.
First I get in this position,
While the rat sits very still.
I'm part Shrink and part Magician,
And it takes a secret skill.
People ask, "Rob what's your job?"
But they figure I am joking,
When I tell them I help rats
To stop drinking and stop smoking.
Some rats are such nail-biters,
Still others tend to overeat.
I wave my magic wand 3 times,
And PRESTO my work is complete.
I no longer miss my old job,
Pulling RABBITS out of HATS.
I'm The Famous Rob Kabob,
I pull HABITS out of RATS!
