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
