    Someone said bricks. They didn’t say what kind.

    THE BUILDERS
    (by Sara Henderson Hay)
    I told them a thousand times if I told them once:
    Stop fooling around, I said, with straw and sticks;
    They won’t hold up; you’re taking an awful chance.
    Brick is the stuff to build with, solid bricks.
    You want to be impractical, go ahead.
    But just remember, I told them; wait and see.
    You’re making a big mistake. Awright, I said,
    But when the wolf comes, don’t come running to me.
    The funny thing is, they didn’t. There they sat,
    One in his crummy yellow shack, and one
    Under his roof of twigs, and the wolf ate
    Them, hair and hide. Well, what is done is done.
    But I’d been willing to help them, all along,
    If only they’d once admitted they were wrong.

    Lego bricks are better than straw and sticks I suppose!
    I can lie down and take a little nap, sad in repose
    My heart is achin’
    My brothers are bacon.

    : D A multitude of effervescent thanks to thee for yon uproarious tale of bullied and portly porkers. ’Twas most appreciated!

    Len’s drawings are charming, as usual.
    Thanks, Bev for the link; I could NOT believe, tho’ that some on UTube actually thought that some of the audience did not have full comprehension of the revised text and that the author had to “search” to find the words to use (so perhaps the “working vocabulary” limitations are correct).
    I think it might be a fun exercise to rewrite more children’s tales in the same manner.

    English teachers everywhere: why not do as DAZZ suggests! If you KNOW a teacher of English, with alacrity, send forth, yea forsooth!

    @beviek

    Forsooth, i do believe that by my tears upon my wrinkled and worn face, the grooves within providing a safe passage for the aforementioned droplets of humour, and my dry and shriveled body wracked with tremors, I did indeed find ye worthy of an accolade of praise! Well done, well done.
