You have a magic way in telling a story like this, especially when it is directed at kids. Your words are bubbling over with fun and excitement, well in tune with the intended fun effect. Your love of children and life shines brightly throughout your poem. Great job, Emile.

neat rhymes for your limerick, Roy. Taught youngsters for forty years plus, they'd love it and ask for more.
