The small boy no more than three
Plays with his soldiers before his tea
He pretends to shoot the bad guy
As his goodies bide their time and hide

Bored is he after half an hour
He decides to play wizards with his tower
The dragons fight against the wizard
the boy makes a sound just like a blizzard

His dad calls out it’s time for tea
His crackers and cheese he likes to eat
Like Wallace and Gromit he also loves
Down his throat his food does he shove

Then back to play in the garden does he
With his sword and shield, a warrior he be
He swishes his sword this way and that
Awakens and scares his little cat

Suddenly he feels tired so he grabs his bear
This child’s favourite toy he does care
Battered and bruised, stuffing falling out
And one ear missing, he cuddles his bear proud
