Shooting Rats-"Freeze the startled eyes of rats against mounds of rubbish."-David Bottoms

The poem is saying the sometimes men are no better than rats. When men drink that act just as stupid as rats do. The men are drinking and shooting rats in a dump.

The poem describes how the rats look and act when the men are acting the same. the theme is that people sometimes act like the creepiest of animals. the poem was ironic because you think it would be describing the rats but it descibes the men as well.
