The people of Hamelin are in a terrible way! They're being run over by rats.
Rats! They fought the dog and killed the cats, and ate the cheese out of the vats, made nests inside men's Sunday hats, and even spoiled the women's chats.
When the Piper comes to solve their rat problems, it looks like Hamelin is saved. Or is it?
There are consequences for those who do not pay the piper. Ever wonder where the phrase "Pay the piper" comes from?
