Listen to poem:

Little Bo-Peep says she lost her sheep,
And did not think where they could find them,
Not an unturned stone, puzzled, went home,
Thinking they all are on the lam.

Though little Bo-Peep, had ate all her sheep,
And cried that she could not have told them,
So little Bo-Peep, could not fall asleep,
For she was without any of her tasty treat.

So early morn she took, her trusty little hook,
Sure to find more of them,
And found them she did, and all had to be hid,
In a dry gully behind the dam.

So all the town folk, when they had awoke,
They found no sheep, just like little Bo-Peep,
Looked high and low, where could they all go
So they went to the valley, wherein, lies the gully.

Then, in just a fleeting, came sounds of bleating,
They found all the sheep, with little Bo-Peep,
So when she was asked, Bo-Peep then confessed,
Said 'twas not a crime, "Sheep I ate 'twas mine."

But for what she took, made her a crook,
Then the town had a talk, let her off with a walk,
Since she's not the same, she then changed her name,
At a loss, less food she ate, leaving herself to fate.

Shopped for a simple diet, saw one, thought to try it,
There, she got stares, be her name, she didn't care,
Lost the weight she gained, for that gave her fame,
Men from round took a walk, 'twas her to see and gawk.

The town's treasury grew, much thanks to you know who,
Nay, they say her name, for they would be too ashamed,
Knave to sad-heart Prince Blue, brought him to see the ado,
Smiled, he asked her name be, "Prince, Behold, Ms. Sultry!"

                   Ahhh Yes! ~~And they lived happily ever-----so brief!
                   They divorced and she was awarded all of the kingdom's sheep.
