In a land far, far away
In a place with no night just day
In a world with forest and hills
Even a couple of running mills
In a forest beneath trees and ferns
Lived a man called Robert Burns
In his rusty metal shack
But not a wall with a single crack
Rodents, insects even a snake
Could not make Robert wake
But just as I walked in the worn-out door
Robert's two feet hit the floor
He said, 'Who are you? Why are you here?'
'I heard you were a poet. I live quite near!'
'Come on then, take a seat
A cup of tea and something to eat?'
'Sorry, it's time for me to wake up.'
I wake up in bed, snug as a pup.
