The Weasel party started out so quiet
So quiet before Badger created a riot
Created a riot and cakes flew all about
All about as Lizard began to shout
Began to shout "You never ask us-it's not right!
It's not right- we're so mad we want to fight-
We want to fight and fight all night!"
"Fight all night? Calm down-don't make a stink!
Don't make a stink, join us and have a drink!"
From there on Badger and Lizard were invited
Were invited and never forgotten or slighted.
Thanks to Tess Kincaid of Magpie Tales!
Once again we have a stellar image to poke our imagination.
