This isnít a story, itís a deep and meaningful poem:

 

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† His name was Colin,

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† Colin!

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† Colin the Mouse!

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† He liked to eat biscuits,

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† In his brown little house.

 

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† Her name was Sandy,

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† Sandy the Rat,

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† She tried to catch Colin,

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† By setting a trap.

 

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† Colin came out,

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† From his dark little hole,

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† And to his surprise,

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† He saw a lump of coal,

 

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† Sandy was watching,

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† Watching the meat,

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† Getting ready to pounce,

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† Getting ready to eat,

 

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† Colin sniffed the Coal,

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† And out jumped the rat,

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† But Colin Was saved,

†††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† †††††††††† By Fatty the Cat.
