Of Mice and People

Ballet Raices de Colombia, Harbourfront, Toronto

    ‘Did you hear about the people who eat mice? I ate mice.
    When I was on the way to the factory for the night shift, I would put mouse traps in the field. When I was coming back home from work in the morning, I would pick up the mice that got caught in the traps while I was working. I would cook the mice for breakfast. They were delicious. They tasted like chicken. I was very happy then.
    Mice in the countryside are good for eating. Mice in the city are not good for eating.’
