Chapter 13

Lucy beamed at the paper
And picked it up
Running back to Wonda
She read;
‘Beware the mad cow
That guards ludus leaves
Eating whoe’er crosses its path
Towards the magic tree’

A wild pig stamped
Upon the snake

Erecting Lucy’s head
Drunken eyes drew open
As it ran to Wonda
Tangled up by her feet
She curled round her leg
Wonda fell on her face
And stood in dismay
