An Aye Aye decides to say No No
One day an Aye Aye,
Said after yet another cry,
'The other animals are so mean,
Always asking me to clean,
And clear up their mess.
Why do I always say yes?
No-one can force,
Me to say, 'Of Course'.'
With a twinkle in his eyes,
He said, 'I must end my Aye Ayes.
I shall start to say No No!
And stop feeling low.'
He followed his own advice,
And it was rather nice,
To see his new self esteem,
Make his furry coat gleam.
Oh, he'd still say yes,
To things without stress.
When he said, 'All right, '
His eyes remained bright.
Able to decide,
He held his head with pride,
And no longer cried.
