Poem for Summer

The theme was an original creation of my eldest, when aged about 3. The variations were just for fun, and have little artistic merit, but might raise a smile.

Variations on a theme

Two little piggy hays
in the ragy run.
One got tired
and then with one.

Variation I

Ten little lemmings
sitting on a wall.
One jumped off
and so did all the rest.

Variation II

Five little pussy cats
who couldn't add up.
One brought a friend
and then there were eight.

Variation III
Six little hedgehogs
who couldn't take away.
One went to get some lunch
and then there were four.

Variation IV
Ten corrupt politicians
holding an election.
When the ballot was counted
then there were five hundred.
