I Ate It

A silly children's rhyme to explain why some things just keep going missing ...

Where's your homework?
I ate it.
Where's my jacket?
I ate it.
Where's the housekey?
I ate it.

My parents and my teachers,
My friends are all confused.
They don't know how it happens,
It leaves them all bemused.

Where's my pen gone?
I ate it.
Where's the football?
I ate it.
Where's my workbook?
I ate it.

We've called up the detectives,
The police, the CSI,
We asked them how it happens
But they can't guess how or why.

Where's my glasses?
I ate it.
Where's the mailbox?
I ate it.
Where's the goldfish?
I ate it.

My auntie thinks it's stra-ange.
My uncle has no clue.
My sisters think it's housemice ...

But what say you?

The End
