Please help!!!  A monster’s eaten me!

    He caught me in the park.

Oh can somebody save me please

    Because in here it’s dark?


I said: “Is anybody there

    To hear my plaintiff plea?

Oh goodness, surely somebody

    Can hear this cry from me?"


Oh come on someone.  Get me out!

    It’s dark and dismal here -

And the thing I’m really dreading most

    Will be to all quite clear:


If someone doesn’t rescue me,

    Then digested I will be -

And in the monster’s mighty guts?

    Well, that’s the end of me.


Listen!!  Can you hear me NOW?

    Ah, yes I think you may -

Oh no!  You’ve come to join me here? -

     Well that's two of us today.
