Moving



I found a box
It's full of socks
In that box there
I saw a teddy bear
Here the box that stands
Is full with pans
Where are the plates?
In the box with bates.
Right next to the fishing pole
But pots are now my goal.
The glasses of wine
Are saved and fine
My flower pot went to bits
When accidentally it hits
The bottom of the van
Someone might help if he can!
Where are the toys?
They are searching my boys.
Someone a hand me lend?
Oh please! Let this end.
