THE ADVENTURE

OF SAMUEL SPENCER SMILE

By Josie Whitehead

Adventure of Samuel Spencer Smile (The)

A boy called Samuel  Spencer Smile

Met a hungry crocodile,

      Who licked his lips and opened wide

      And Sammy disappeared inside.

 

He wriggled, sniggled, screamed and giggled;

Wiggled, jiggled - felt quite niggled.

      He gave the poor croc indigestion

      And, to its mind, there came this question:

 

'Why did I eat a boy like this?

It was quite stupid and remiss.'

         SO . . . He sicked up Sammy all in one

          And felt quite pleased with what he’d done.

 

So Sammy ran home quick to Mum

And never mentioned Crocky's tum,

        But at dinnertime he had a shock

        When Mum served up some nice braised croc.
