One day, Bob woke with a bit of a problem,
He had terrible hiccups and couldn't stop them.
He went downstairs to talk to his mum,
But she was too busy filling up her tum.
He started to panic, what could he do?
He went to see his big brother, Lou.
His brother laughed but not for long,
He noticed he had hiccups that were very strong.
They looked in a book to find a cure,
To help stop their hiccups for sure.
They made a drink with sprouts, worms and bugs,
And drank it together, glug, glug, glug!
They finished their drinks until there was none,
They were really happy that their hiccups had gone.
