amos and the fiery death-stick

one grand and bright

sunshiny day as i was

whistling on my way

boss - it was just before the

fourth of july and i was

so happy i could cry -

when across my weary

path i spied this odd hot dog

with its tail just fried

and it had printed – black cat –

on its side

what is it says i to

no one in particular

why it s a ufo from roswell

says willifred the white

rat who came by about then

no it s a missile from iran or

north korea or somewhere else

says freddie flea who was

hiding behind a tree

no you re all wet says

sammy salamander who

popped up from a nearby

pond it s one of them new-

fangled breakfast burritos

no it s more dangerous than

that says bertie woeworm

who heard the commotion

and wriggled to the site

what makes you say that

says me

cause i know says he

that s a firecracker an

animal death-stick oh

woe is us woe is us

i tell you these firecrackers

may not look like much but

they deal in death and disaster

a bunch says he
