Amidst the dense mist and fog
Came out a cute fat dog
That said, “Have you seen a cat
That ran after the rat?
“The cat was beautiful and nice”
Squeaked the tiny little mice
“No, it’s not nice and it can’t be”
Buzzed the yellow flying bee.
“Oh, I have seen a brown cat here
Not long before,” said the hare
“You are making our case worse”
“Be quite”, neighed the horse.
“Who must have seen then?” bleated the sheep
“Because I was already in a deep sleep”
“Open and see that rusted box”
Angrily said the ox.
“No, this box has a lock”
“It belongs to me”, crowed the cock
“Let’s go and try to pull”
“It must be hiding”, bellowed the bull.
“Have you seen that cat, donkey?”
Chattered an ugly monkey
“No, I was with the ant”
“A lie”, trumpeted the elephant.
“No, what’s there to quarrel?
Said the small squirrel
“The cat has broken the window glass” hissed the snake
“So, who is going to make?”
“No, it sucks,
It sucks”, cried the ducks
“Be strong, don’t be too low”
‘We can find it”, said the buffalo.
“I can walk in the jungle, both smooth and rough,
May be I can find it first”, said the giraffe
“They searched but they dint”, to his friends said the camel
“This is a sad end of our fable”.
