Title: Why animals don’t have computers

They bought a computer,
Took it home on a scooter,
The Mouse and the Kangaroo.

They unpacked the box,
Then they called wise old Fox
To clarify what they should do.

It all fitted nicely,
And connected precisely,
Just like the instructions required.

And before Alligator
Dropped round for potater
Nearly all of the system was wired.

“Now there’s just one thing left,
But I think we’re bereft
Of this item - I can’t see it here.”

So they all looked around.
Some looked up, some looked down,
Till the Kangaroo had an idea.

He jumped up off the floor,
Pointed straight out the door,
Shouted, ”Look at that pig in a rocket!”

Whilst they fell for the joke,
The Mouse went up in smoke,
As he’d plugged its tail into the socket.

Well, the animals toasted,
As their smallest friend roasted,
And opened a bottle of bubbly.

Now the Mouse was connected,
And virus protected.
They were finally online. Lubbly-Jubbly.
