My apologies… I went over word count by 7… In this case, I think you’ll see why it’s just not a cutable piece. Enjoy, and if you are curious, just hum the tune to “Ten Little Somethings” while you read. Hehe! I guarantee, the tune will stick in your head all day long…LOL!
Little Oil Cans
Six little oil cans all in a row.
First for the rocking chair,
and now there are five.
Five little oil cans all in a row.
Second for the rocking horse,
and now there are four.
Four little oil cans all in a row.
Third for the tricycle,
and now there are three.
Three little oil cans all in a row.
Fourth for the bicycle,
and now there are two.
Two little oil cans all in a row.
Fifth for the motorcycle,
and now there is one.
One little oil can sits all alone,
ready for the rocking chair
as age takes its toll.
