The Tragedy at Mini-Beastie Hall

by Josie Whitehead


In Beastington a family lived, who made a “Beasts R You,”

It was a section of a garden – well, a mini-beastie zoo.

The little creatures all moved in and crawled around the wall,

And the lovely name they gave their home was Mini-Beastie Hall.


”Let’s throw a lovely party, if the family gives consent.

We’ll plan a meal, arrange some games, get invitations sent.”

The news got round, the day arrived, guests came to “Beasts R You”.

What a really lovely place to live, it’s exactly like a zoo.”


A ladybird, a grasshopper, slugs and worms came too -

It was such a nice occasion and the party grew and grew.

One brought his own computer – the spider’s name was Fred.

“I’ve had a lovely thought” he said “You can learn to surf the web.”


”A computer’s such an asset for your lovely little park

I’ll teach you how to crawl the web – if you wait until it’s dark!

I don’t want you to bug it, or to introduce a worm -

I’ll only teach you one by one – just wait and take your turn.”


So, one by one they entered: “Just what can we achieve?” -

But a tragic thing then happened, for no-one seemed to leave.

Mini Beastie Hall went quiet, there was no-one on the wall -

Which was really not surprising – Fred had eaten one and all.
