Antics And Capers



The cat was softly barking
The owl was hooting moo
The cow was only harking
The fox was purring boo

The hare was fairly voting
The ant was tossing dice
The croc was nicely doting
The tick was frying rice

The gnat was sadly tiding
The colt was hit or miss
The hog was hotly sliding
The kid was seeing bliss

The toad was likely raving
The sloth was tilling mud
The bear was justly saving
The fly was spiting blood

The rat was briskly flying
The bee was earning pay
The dog was freely spying
The cod was making hay

The hen was slyly reading
The ox was playing dead
The bug was jury seeding
The ape was getting wed
