The Farmer

The farmer ran up to his chickens,
and this is what he said.
‘The queen is coming! What shall I do?
Shall I give my favorite or finest pair of shoes?
I need a gift, but what shall it be?
Please help me, dear friends, your help I need!’
‘Cheep,’ said the chicken.
So the farmer said to his horse,
‘The chicken has told me to buy something cheap.
Surely you have advice, old as you be?’
The horse said, ‘neigh.’
he sat in his rocking chair,                                                                                                                                       sad and ashamed.                                                                                                                                                                “I will get her a tie for her hair.”                                                                                                                              he said to his dog.                                                                                                                                                       “she will like that, don’t you agree?”                                                                                                                The dog itched his ear.                                                                                                                                             “No? Then what do you think I should do?”                                                                                                  The dog barked, “Bow.” And so he did.                                                                                                           “The queen smiled and waved.” He said to his sheep.                                                                             “Bah.” belted the goat.                                                                                                                                                And the farmer walked off,                                                                                                                                       no longer sad and ashamed,                                                                                                                                    For the queen had filled his heart with joy,                                                                                                      with a simple smile and wave.
