I KNOW JUST THE PLACE

By Josie Whitehead

I Know Just the Place

Said the blackbird to the robin:
     'I’d love a worm for tea.
I know that you like wriggly worms,
     So perhaps you can help me.'

'Yes,' replied the robin.
      'I know just the place for you:
In Mrs Whitehead’s garden
    You’ll find more than just a few.'

Said the ladybird to the blue tit:
     'I’d love greenfly for my tea.
I know that you like greenfly
     So perhaps you can help me.'

'Yes,' replied the blue tit.
      'I know just the place for you:
In Mrs Whitehead’s garden 
    You’ll find more than just a few.'

Said the moorhen to the ducklings:
      'I’d love bread and seeds for tea.
I know that you like these as well,
     So perhaps you can help me.'

'Yes,' replied the ducklings:
      'We know just the place for you:
In Mrs Whitehead’s garden
    You’ll find more than just a few.'

Said a fat boy to his mother: 

'I’d love some chocolate biscuits, a milkshake, a scone with some jam, and lots and lots of creamy cakes for tea.  I know you like these things as well, so perhaps you can help me.'

So what do you think his mother said?

'No!' replied his mother:
      'It’s NOT the place for you.
All those biscuits, chocolate and milkshakes?
      No! Not even a few!'

And his mother was quite right!
