Blinky the Hero

Blinky woke up to it's favorite tune
Blinky Blinky Blinky Blink-y Blink-y
The sunset brightened up the day
The morning smelled of honey dew
And in the fields mice and men went to work
And in the river fishes swam with the current
By the time Blinky went out to play
By the time Blinky went on his way
Darkness had fallen on the village
Darkness covered up all of the light
A panic was felt among the villagers
A sudden attack that made them uncomfortable
In the hour of the worst day of all
In the story of Blinky a hero had to be called
Blinky rose up to the occasion
Blinky had the power to do away with darkness
To bring back the light that would shine on the village.
In the end Blinky saved the day and everybody
Shouted out Hooray and they all said they were okay
Thanks to Blinky the Hero of the Day!
