You might even call them ge­nies And their ap­petite for mis­chief is im­mense One is Maya, one is Lucy They be­lieve that grass is juicy When it’s grow­ing on the far side of the fence

I’m the one who did the dig­ging, Built the fence with all its rig­ging, More se­cure than Colditz Castle, so I thought They went un­der, over, round it Where a loop­hole lay they found it And went munch­ing on the things they didn’t ought

Like a mag­net to their noses Were the most ex­pen­sive roses While the flower bor­der never stood a chance Through the spinach, beets and rocket Adding health foods to their docket They con­tin­ued on their free and merry dance

Now the umpteenth sor­tie’s ended And once more the fence is mended There’ll be peace now for a lit­tle while at least See them round the pen go trot­ting Now with beards to­gether, plot­ting They are cook­ing up another break­out feast But this time I’ll have them beaten Not another shrub gets eaten Not another Queen El­iz­a­beth de­stroyed For I’ve called up my sup­plier Bought more coils of ra­zor wire The perime­ter has land­mines all de­ployed

And there’s search­lights that will func­tion Set at ev­ery gate and junction With mo­tion sen­sors, cam­eras and the like See their yel­low eyes a-gleam­ing I won’t fear their sneaky schem­ing Each plan de­feated by pre-emp­tive strike

Now I just can’t help but won­der If I made a silly blun­der When I gave that goat­ish pair a vault­ing horse And it’s rather hard to fol­low Why the ground here rings so hol­low And their bleat­ing sounds like lit­tle bursts of Morse

What’s that Maya’s got be­side ‘er? Could it be a work­ing glider? And where did Lucy get that set of keys? Raise the shields round all the flow­ers Snipers, quickly mount your tow­ers And some­one send for re­in­force­ments, PLEASE....
