Mary had a little lamb
They said go back to school
She wasn’t sure if she’d be safe
But they had changed the rule.
Now everywhere that Mary went
The lamb was sure to go
He followed her to school that day
Though Mary didn’t know.
It made the children laugh and play
To see a lamb at school
But as for social distancing
To them it seemed too cruel.
They were so pleased to see their friends
They laughed and squealed with glee
A lamb in class made them forget
To do things differently.
‘It’s hard enough to keep kids safe,
the lamb should not be here!’
The angry teacher turned him out
But he still lingered near.
He waited patiently there bouts
for Mary to appear
She promised she would take him home
And made her anger clear.
“What makes the lamb love Mary so?”
The eager children cry;
“She understands the rules so well”
The teacher did reply.
