Mary had a giant lamb
a fanged, ferocious brute.
In size it rivalled elephants,
massive and vast, not cute.
She rode it down the street one day
it trampled all in sight.
It baahed aloud to clear its way
and nought could stay its might.
It ate the City Council House
and drank the boating lake.
And when the word went out to rouse
the cops, it made them shake.
To Mary’s town, oh, do not go,
there’s nothing left to see.
The lamb has fled to Borneo
And Mary’s gone to sea.
