After Easter Bunny Left.
Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!
Leave your shoes, don’t worry,
Forget your jackets and your hats,
It’s time to go; let’s scurry!
So in the ceiling of the house,
Little mice and Mrs. Mouse,
Just after Easter Bunny left,
Embarked upon their plan of theft.
They scaled down walls – through gaps and cracks;
Avoiding funny, springy traps.
The moon sent light through window panes,
Assisting mice with their campaigns.
And then at last a glint, a gleam,
“We’ve found it, yay!” squeaked one mouse team;
It’s brilliant, bright, it’s so astounding…
Their little hearts were really pounding.
An Easter egg – wrapped in thin tin,
The mice created such a din.
But Mrs. Mouse said “Shh – quiet, hush,
We’ve got to hurry, we have to rush.”
And so with care the mice did toil;
Unwrapped the egg and left the foil;
For children love the foil the best
And mice prefer to eat the rest.
