The “ie” Sound

What is it with the “ie” sound that
We add  to end of words
For you might think it’s rather cute
But I think “how absurd!”
For by adding such an ending
We start to sound like mice
Particularly when spoken out
Not once but twice or thrice!
So my lovelies in your onsies
Please take a selfie do
But don’t forget these words exist
Without that “ie” sound too 🙂

Mousetrap

There’s a mouse in the attic
Oh what shall we do?
It’s running around with
It’s pals up there too
It’s leaving its droppings
As black as the coal
And gnawing its way
Through bags to make holes
I swear that these vermin
Are out to get me
And before very long
They’ll be eating my tea

But stop!  I can hear them
They’re talking out loud
A mouse in conversation
In the midst of their crowd

“These humans”, it squeaks
“Say we’re encroaching their space
But they invaded ours
Without any grace
They built on our fields
Where we ran oh so free
And now they complain
They hate our company
I swear that these humans
Are out to get me
And before very long
They’ll have me for their tea”

There’s a mouse in the attic
Oh what shall we do?
It’s running around with
It’s pals up there too
It’s driving me crazy
I want it to go
The mouse in the attic
To go with the flow
To leave and uproot
His whole family
Or else he’ll become
The cat’s dinner and tea!
