The Owl and the Mouse Meet Stinky
A childrenís poem
The Owl and the mouse had been friends for days
Ever since the mouse saved the Owl in a daze
So the Owl took care of the mouse like it was his brother
They were very close friends and there was no other
Then one day while they were napping within
The old red barn that was covered with tin.
They had a new visitor, which was up to no good
He came slithering under the door that was made of old wood.
Stinky Snake was long and round
And would eat anything he could find on the ground
The first thing he saw was the mouse asleep
And up to the mouse he began to creep
Just about then the Owl awoke
And saw the predicament his friend invoked
Up like a flash and down with a dash
He hit Stinky Snake and they began to clash
It didnít take long before all knew
That the Owl knew just what to do
Now Stinky Snake took off in a hurry
And under the door he went with a scurry
He didnít know the mouse with a small face
Had such a big friend in a very high place
Now what would have happened to the mouse that day
If the Owl hadnít been in the barn to stay?
That just goes to show, with your enemyís make amends
Because in this Old World you canít have too many friends.
