“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”.
