Lion and Flea

“Hurry hurry, rush rush rush

Or your ice cream will turn to slush,

If you do not eat it soon,

I will steal it with my spoon”.

Said the lion to the flea

As they were sat down to tea.



“Your spoon is far too big

To fit inside my Smartie lid”

Said the flea to his host

As he brushed away bits of toast

And to the flea’s small surprise

The lion did apologise

“I’m sorry that was most rude of me,

I must go buy some real crockery”.
