Today I bring you another submission from my son Zev (age 12). This metaphor came to him and he had to get it down right away. He also wanted me to tell you all that he has pet rats which is why he used mice rather than rats as his metaphor.
The Mouse of Sickness
by Zev Shoag
Sickness is like a mouse
it can fit through the smallest spaces
infest you when you least expect it.
Even if you can’t see it
it is there.
