Poem - It wasn't me

Post date: Jul 28, 2011 11:39:43 AM

By Simbo Rumblebelly  

It wasn't me who ate the cake 

Coincidence my belly aches 

I surely didn't lick the cream 

I say it's not all as it seems 


It wasn't me who ate the pie

Would you believe I'd ever lie?

And as for eating up that stew

There's still enough there left for you!


It wasn't me who spilt the beer

It's chance my empty mug is near

The floor it may be stained a bit

Just put the rug on top of it


It wasn't me broke the door

I swear that it was broke before

I also haven't lost the key

It's just not where it's meant to be


It wasn’t me who scared the cat

I’d never do a thing like that

And did I really scare the horse?

It's always running off, of course!


It wasn’t me who did those things

It’s never trouble that I bring

It wasn’t me who did such wrong

Nothing to see, just move along


I tell you every word is true

I don't do naught I shouldn't do

So what it was that you did see

I tell you now, it wasn't me!
