(In the spirit of “Green Eggs and Ham”)
comes another ‘Liittle Miss Hen’ story
GREEN eggs and
more GREEN eggs
Little Miss Hen found a friend today
Someone to help with a cooking chore
A little voice shouted, “I’ll help you Miss Hen”
A tiny mouse scampered across the floor
“I’m baking a cake and I need two eggs
One of them’s for me, the other’s for you
Would you mind much getting them for us”
So Molly Mouse knew just what to do
"I brought two eggs, but they are green
What happened to them - can you say?"
"My chickens eat nothing but spinach
Green's what everyone wants anymore"
I think my eggs will be all the rage soon
The door bell rang - two more at the door
Molly, please fetch two more green eggs
We'll have to build a much bigger cake
When the others saw funny green eggs
All they could think was they were fake
Will it taste anything like the pie: Key Lime?"
They'd never seen eggs this color before
"But an egg is still an egg, soon you'll see"
Another knock; two more friends at the door
"The skin or shell doesn't tell what's inside
Like people are people no matter their shade
No better or worse than the one next door
Remember green eggs, are born this way"
Let us help you, Molly, to gather more eggs
Friends keep coming and coming, what to do?
This cake must be huge to feed the others
Miss Hen built the cake in the shape of a shoe
Remember she said the woman in the shoe
She had all those children to care for and feed
I present to you now this shoe full of cake
The cake wasn't green, but eggs were you see
