Temper Tantrums at Halloween


Mummy tells me, “It’s Halloween today,”

But she also says, “I’m way too young to go”.

Well, I’m afraid I’ll have to display

My worst ever monster act – and so

By frightening her I’ll snarl, scream and shout,

Wave my long, ugly tentacles about,

Stamp my big, scary claws in protest

And I’ll try to do my very best

To make her change her mind – oh dear!

Hmm, no chance of that then, I fear.


Oh no, not again – another paddy,

Pack it in now or I’ll tell your daddy.
