The (not so) Great Hamster Escape – Kirsten Allen
The hamster, (his cheeks filled with food)
Looked through the cage bars and thought it was rude
That the humans had the run of the house,
So did the cat, the dog and the mouse.
“I’m going to escape!” He said
And plans started to clack like a wheel in his head.
He couldn’t squeeze through the gaps – they were narrow
And his bum was the size of a small wheel barrow.
When he tried to prise the metal apart
The only thing that escaped was a silent long fart.
He attempted a gnibble and attempted a gnaw
But all the chomping and chewing gave him a sore jaw
He paced up and down trying to think
Only stopping briefly for a quick drink
An idea suddenly hit him like a tank at full throttle –
He’d make a small hole in his drinking bottle!
The hamster carried out his devious plan
And the next day at breakfast over croissants and jam
The smallest human noticed the bottle was dry
And the little offspring let out a cry
“Oh mummy, oh daddy there’s not a drop spare!”
But the grown ups were too busy to care.
So the little girl decided to do it herself
And grabbed a new bottle from the pet food shelf.
She carefully put the new bottle in
Then put the old one in the bin.
The hamster’s excitement reached the highest peaks!
“She’s forgotten to shut the door!” He squeaked!
He cartwheeled and rubbed his paws with glee
Very soon he knew that he’d be free!
Lit by only the moon, the house was quiet once more,
He crept and creeped out of that door.
But oh no! Alas! Alack!
He never saw the puddy cat…..
