The tragic tale of the fondant snail

Robbie Cheadle delights us with a children’s poem. Please, read on…

Robbie's inspiration

The brown fondant snail suffered a terrible fate,

It happened last night, not very late.


It wasn’t the cat, giving him a lick,

and making him look quite pale and sick.


It wasn’t the Hamstah’s over for the evening,

and having a snack before suddenly leaving.


No, it was Silly Willy, who thought for a lark,

he’d jump on the photography table in the dark.


The snail, under his bottom, was squashed quite flat,

and resembled something like a paint splat.


Poor little Willy was quite distraught,

His Mom’s hard work had come to naught.


He silently slunk off and climbed into his bed,

Where he sorrowfully confessed while blushing red.


And that, dear friends, is the end of this tale,

About the tragic demise of the fondant snail.
