The tragic tale of the fondant snail

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.

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.
