HOW LITTLE BO PEEP LOST HER SHEEP
Mary loved a little lamb and it loved her too
Unfortunately for Mary, she had created an angry ewe
The ewe it charged across the field as away our Mary ran
She was met outside the school by a charging ram
All the children laughed and sang to see our Mary run
When you bring a lamb to school there is a lot of fun
She passed the sleeping little boy blue
As she was followed by the ram and ewe
Our Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard
to make a lamb chop stew for the crew
Her cupboard was bare so she set up a snare
And she captured lamb, ram and ewe!
Ram, lamb, Sheep or Mutton, what will be their fare
Heaping pots of sheep meat soon sat on the table there
Mary had a little lamb for breakfast lunch and dinner
It went to school with her each day – that lamb it now was in her!

Inspired by the following limerick provided by Les Peate – October 10, 2007:
Mary had a little lamb
Her father shot it dead
And now it goes to school with her
Between two hunks of bread!
