Thunder and Lightening


Thunder the Rabbit said to Lightening the Hare,
“Why are you stood under the light, is it quite dark over there ?!”,
Thunder the Rabbit replied that much worse,
– He didn’t want his tail to getter wetter of course !
Thunder the Rabbit jumped up and down,
He was as mad as the hatter about the rain over town !
Lightening the Hare said as quick as a flash,
Could he please come inside for some sausages and mash ?
Thunder the Rabbit said that it was no problem at all,
But he’d have to sit on the chair by the wall.
So long as he didn’t crack bad jokes or his cups …
Or tread on the tail of one of his pups !
