This quaint painting by Verhas published by SIMPLY SNICKERS has inspired some quaintish verse!
I'm going to tell Mammy you did it!
I'll say you were running too fast!
You were chasing that ball
And it ran down the hall!
You knocked over the plant as you passed!
She'll make you stay up in the nursery
Till Dadda comes home. Wait and see!
He'll give you the strap
And I'll secretly clap!
I'll be happy because it's not me!
But I'm going to tell Mammy you did it!
I'll say you were dancing around!
You were tossing your curls
Just like all silly girls,
And the plant-pot just crashed to the ground!
You'll have nothing but gruel and water
And your doll will be taken away.
You'll be slapped that's for sure,
A hard slap, very sore,
And I can't guess what Dadda will say!
But we know very well we were chasing!
We know we both tripped on the mat!
Try to look meek and mild,
Like a dutiful child
And blame the whole thing on the
