Mouse vs Chestnut

The Farmers Wife was out picking up sweet chestnuts the other day.
She stumbled upon a tragic scene.
 The Farmer and The Farmers Wife 
have often been hit in the head by falling nuts 
and burrs while picking up the chestnut harvest. 
But their heads are much harder than mice heads.
 Maybe the poor thing is just knocked out for a while.
Tomorrow it will have a splitting head ache and have learned a lesson.
Chestnut trees in the fall can be deadly to tiny creatures.
Or maybe the Farmers Cat left it there as a joke.
