In’jun Joe and the Pioneer Mouse In The New Found Land

cainglaj.jpgcainglaj.jpgcainglaj.jpg

In’jun Joe met a pioneering mouse,

Who said did he know the best place to build a house ?

In’jun Joe then showed him a map,

Moaning that he’d woken him from his nap.

The mouse, of course, wanted a hole,

Where he could hibernate just like a mole.

The pioneering mouse first tried a keyhole,

But it was too small and he couldn’t roll.

In’jun Joe suggested that a log cabin,

Would be a better place to build a house,

To gab in …

The pioneering mouse doubted it very much,

Thinking that it would be too big to climb to the roof, as such.

Did he think he’d suddenly become a millionaire in a gold rush ?

So In’jun Joe said that outside there was a cheap, leafy bush.

In’jun Joe showed the mouse a drainpipe,

Which the pioneer did like considerably,

Although it was a little tight.

And when he made it halfway down that night,

It seemed someone had turned off the light.

In’jun Joe offered to show the pioneer,

Where to find tasty buffalo steak …

And a bottle of beer.

That was the type of pioneering he liked to do,

Finding new tasty things to eat, in a salt and pepper stew.
