Matilda was a fan of pop

She’d even trade her best top

For half a bottle of the stuff

 Or tear her teddy to fluff


Matilda’s guardian

Was her Aunt Cardigan

 And spoilt matilda rotten

Aunt's promise was you'll never be forgotten


It happened that one day

Matilda had grew tiered of play

And decied to drink all the pop

That Aunt had bought from the shop


Matilda's stomach couldn't cope

As though it had eaten an Antelope

Matilda fell to the floor

And whished she hadn't drunk any more


POP went Matilda's tummy

"I want my mummy"

And when Aunt came home

She went streight to the phone


And that was the end of Matilda

        OH my word! Poor Matilda! She died for her folly? La, that is very sad....a serious lesson to all the rest of us not only to avoid drinking too much pop, but also to avoid overindulgence in anything, lest we be destroyed by it! Thanks again I liked it! Also see I've rated it, okay?
