The Gingerbread Man

Post  Lucie on Fri Nov 11 2011, 12:01

In a cosy little wooden house
Lived a farmer, his wife and a small door mouse.
And on this summers day of heat
The farmer's wife made a special treat.

With flour, sugar and some free-range eggs
She made his head, two arms and legs.
Two raisen eyes and a cherry nose,
With gum-drop buttons to his toes.

The 'Finest' Gingerbreaded man
Home-baked to give a golden tan.
But as she checked if he was done,
Up, the little buggar run!
Out the oven and across the floor
Kicking the mouse as he whizzed out the door.

So whipping her pinny off and slapping her hubby,
"Get after him luv,wotcha waiting for, Chubby!!"
"Yer supper has lept and is crossing the yard,
Go chase 'im-be quick!- ya great lump o'lard!"

This sewer-mouthed wife and her husband took chase
for the Gingerbread man, twas a 'in -the-bag' race.
Then along came a cow wanting something to munch
And the gingerbread man sure looked good f'his lunch..

Then passing a horse , sooo fed up with his hay
"ride on my back" he said with a neigh,
"Do you think i'm half-baked?!" replied the Gingerbread man
" I can run faster-catch me if you can!"

The cheaky young chappy, so quick with his jip
was speeding towards a river- to slip
then along came a fox with cunning short plan
slipped into the water and towards him he swam

"let me offer my service to free you from harm"
said the fox to the gingerbread at the edge of the farm.
"but surely , you'll eat me " he said with a wail
"Not" replied fox, " if you jump on my tail"

So he lept on his tail,looking back with a smirk
He thought he's been clever, but he acted beserk
For the water got deeper,Gingers feet would get wet
"then jump on my back" said the fox"No need to fret

with nowhere to run What was Ginger to do?
