Cindy tossed a bramble in, And Josie threw a stick. Maxie heaved his baseball bat! He didn’t “give a lick”!
Basil said he’d bring a chair! And Petey looked askance! Perhaps his grandma’s davenport Might make the fire dance!
A neighbor boy from Liar’s Lane Screeched and laughed and laughed. Marcie thought him quite insane, But threw in a wooden raft.
A breeze picked up and carried smoke And sparks both far and near. And townsfolk noticed something wrong. “Does something smell quite queer?”
The flames began to lick the grass, So dry from Summer’s drought. And spread to all the nearby shrubs! Too late to put it out!
The children screamed and ran away. They knew that they’d done wrong! But Cindy said it HAD been fun, And Josie sang a song!
Maxie ate a candy bar And shared a piece with Pete. And Marcie kissed the neighbor boy. She thought him rather sweet!
And then the children formed a club And marched right into town. But no one came to say Hello! You see, they'd burned it down.
