Mary And The Lamb


Mary had a little lamb,

she loved it, don't cha know,


but someone watched and waited there

for the moment to show.


An axe he held in his right hand,

ready to take a swing;


a perfect murder he had planned,

an ending he would bring.


He loitered on the shady path

and hid behind a tree,


then out he stepped, began to laugh

with mania and glee.


With sub-human strength so mighty

he struck a fatal blow;


the lamb sauntered off quite sprightly

but Mary could not go.
