Rats and Christmas cookies
Your daughter drops off the kids and their rats,
So she can go shopping for Christmas at last.
The kids are lively and thrilled to be here,
With their pets on their shoulders and their grandmother near.
But the rats become boring, and finally pee,
Then helping their grandma is greeted with glee.
Baking Christmas cookies is oh so much fun,
and they are edible too, even before they are done.
But be sure to insist that the kids wash their hands,
before rolling the dough to go on the pan.
For when they are baked and ready to eat,
Who wants cookies that taste like rat feet?
