Four Friends Lease a House

This is the story of the frog, the bee, the spider and the mouse
They decided to become roommates and purchase a small house.
First the bee got kicked out, and he began to grouse
They are unfair to bees, especially that danged mouse!

The next one out the door and off the lease was the mouse of course.
He called up his cousin and said “the frog was the source!
Frogs always have it out for me, he told his cousin.
I wish I could stomp on them by the dozen.”

The last one to go was the spider, kicked out by the frog.
He found a marvelous new place inside a log.
He hid inside it for days because of a big black dog.
Now the house is inhabited by only one selfish frog.
