The Whassitt and The Whattiss
Age Rating: 10 +
It happened on a night, not long ago,
This tale of the Whassitt and the Whattiss.
Whassitt did want to travel wide,
Whattiss preferred the home.
The argument, it raged, into the
Early hours of the morn.
Whassitt and Whattiss, neither one
Nor other, victorious nor triumphant.
Whassitt had fell down in a dead faint,
Whattiss followed soon, thereafter.
When the milk man came a-knocking
Nary sound of normal, rumble bumble did he hear.
Instead a silence, like none other,
That spoke of death upon the wind.
He opened wide the door to find
The bodies of the Whassitt and the Whattiss
Locked in death's own final grasp.
One to go the North, the other to the South.
This tale, as it is truly, truly told
Is told by Parents, Teachers, and the like,
To warn their charges of the perils
Of discord in their minds.
