The Out of Date Date Ate By An Ape


No wonder the ape was going ape with belly ache,

He’d eaten a very ripe, out – of date date.

He really just wanted a quiet munch,

But ended up in agony, just after lunch.

The ape roared, it really hurt a lot,

After he’d eaten all the dates that the

supermarket had got.

The packet looked clean and new,

But inside one or two maggots must have grew.

Although the ape growled out in pain,

He still tried to get another in his mouth again.
