Temerarious Tabias: Little Miss Muffet

Little Miss Muffet

Sat on her tuffet

article continues below

Eating her curds and whey

Along came a spider

Such tenacity when he sat down beside her,

and spat venom even as she ran away.

“Spider!” Shouted she.

But was met with a faint ‘tee hee,’

As Tabias with his tail,

bear ears, half paws- claws?

Not one’s really sure.

That Tabias,

With his temerarious style.

Ferociously laughing, dropped the fake spider.

And turned to run his own way.

Miss Muffet caught wind of the gag.

She bull-charged, kicking dirt,

Spun on a toe, cussed, then took off after Tabias.

In a boy-beating type of way.
