Pre-school’s out. It’s party time.
Family picnic. Play and climb.
Bubbles, races, art to make.
Pizza, hot dogs, tasty cake.
Slices, icing, sprinkles, yum!
Kids dig in, but still there’s some.
Carla shares with little Pete,
Who’s happy with a pre-school treat.
Pieces tumble off Pete’s chin.
Pup grabs one. Delicious win.
More crumbs drop, break up, and bounce,
Target for a cat to pounce.
Bunny bites a piece so small.
Rolls it home, a rabbit’s ball.
A pinch is left, just two wee nibbles.
A speedy mouse chews one but dribbles.
He hurries home but leaves a smidgen.
Fast food for a swooping pigeon.
She pecks and gulps but leaves a munch.
Not much but makes a perfect lunch,
For ant who hauls it to the nest,
Where workers swarm, feast on the rest.
So cake’s all gone. But kids are here.
Now watch the ice cream disappear.
