Jack and His Magic Beans
|Jack traded Bossie for beans that were magic,
Which to his mother defied all logic.
She threw the beans into their garden plot,
Hoping they would grow something, besides diddly-squat.
The next morning Jack found a gargantuan beanstalk,
That appeared to have stair up which he could walk.
Hoping to meet a giant face-to-face,
Jack ascended the beanstalk staircase.
When he got to the top all he found,
Was a colossal abandoned town,
He ambled through the streets looking for gold,
All he found was piles of saffron mold.
Outside the city was a yellow brick road,
Jack followed it to a witches abode,
The ginger bread house looked quite tasty,
He took a bite that tasted zesty.
Before he finished eating the entire house,
The witch turned him into a little gray mouse,
She transported him back to his bed,
Where he woke up with an ache and knot on his head.
Did it really happen or was it a dream,
Jack's mother entered the room and let out a scream,
Jack looked in the mirror and a mouse face looked back,
Jack can't leave his house because he looks like a cat snack.
