Lucy Dora Stuck in Flora
A silly bug called Lucy Dora
tripped and fell into some Flora.
Apparently, she bumped her head
when landing on the slice of bread.
She wobbled to and fro and muttered
‘unlucky that this bread was buttered! ’
Lucy Dora went round the bend
and came upon a sticky end!
As just before a slice of ham
there came a layer of raspberry jam,
on top, a smattering of grated cheese
what a mixture, if you please!
Then on top, a second slice -
Lucy Dora tasted nice!
For a humble bug, a grand finale:
Eaten by a boy called Charlie.
