Archibald Mouse



Have you heard the latest, kiddies? Archibald Mouse is confused He thinks he's a big scary tiger So no more chewing on shoes! Though he doesn't have any tiger stripes He says they came off in the bath Also says the soap made him shrink He sure can make people laugh! He tries to let out a big tiger roar But all that comes out is a squeak Archie's been trying so very hard In fact he's been trying for weeks! Gotta feel for this cute little critter Perhaps there's a blow-up pill That when he takes it he gets real big Last I heard he was trying still! So even if you're just a wee tike Remember to keep thinking big Keep trying hard to better yourself And you'll wind up dancing a jig! © Jack Ellison 2013
