Ice Cream Moral - Alternate
Once upon a Summer day
Two kids were by the street
And they were eating ice cream cones
So they could beat the heat.
One was a boy, not too young
His age was almost nine
He had a double chocolate scoop
And it tasted mighty fine.
Then there's the girl, his sister, who
Was eleven years of age;
She licked on her vanilla cone
Cause vanilla's all the rage.
Both were very happy
Eating cream of white and brown,
When the little boy licked just too hard
And a scoop fell to the ground.
The little girl just looked and laughed,
"Ha ha, you little brat;
You just dropped yours on the ground
So how do you like that?"
It's not nice to pick on others, so,
As you could surely tell,
She went back to her own ice cream
And suddenly it fell.
The little boy had watched her scoop
As it fell on the ground
And then he looked right back at his,
The chocolate, nice and round.
He took a chunk and ate it,
And then gave, to her, his too
"I like to share," he said in smile,
"So I'll give my half to you."
