The Sad Tale of the Mindless Mice







Nine Mice


by Jack Prelutsky



Nine Mice on tiny tricycles 
went riding on the ice, 
they rode in spite of warning signs, 
they rode despite advice


The signs were right, the ice was thin, 
in half a trice, the mice fell in, 
and from their chin down to their toes 
those mice entirely froze.


Nine mindless mice, who paid the price, 
are thawing slowly by the ice 
still sitting on their tricycles 


…nine white and shiny micicles
