An astronaut spooned special pudding last night,
For Hamish, Ramona, Christina and Dwight.
The pudding had stardust and peppermint chips,
With jellybeans, chocolate and icicle tips.
The taste was delightful, the kids wanted more.
They licked all the bowls clean and ran to the store.
The astronaut followed, but fell in a puddle.
His head hit a rock and he said in a muddle –
“We need dusty stars, minty icicle beans,
A packet of chips with some pepper and greens.”
The kids crowded round him and said, “You’re confused,
What you need’s a doctor, your head is quite bruised!”
