Big Foot


Mum stepped on the Lego

Scattered pieces everywhere

That majestic princess castle

Was definitely in need of repair


She blamed the careless slippers

Too big for her feet she said

She’d tried to miss the jigsaw puzzle

But landed on the castle instead


Too much mess was lying around

For Mum to duck and dive

She hadn’t meant to break anything

But her luck did not survive


She picked up all the pieces

Built that stunning castle once more

But only when she’d finished

Did she notice something on the floor


A quivering pretty princess

Shaking from head to toe

Wondering what had happened

To her castle of long ago


She tried to run and hide

In her castle like before

But silly Mum had only forgotten

To make a swinging door


Now the princess was really stuck

With nowhere left to go

She sat and stared right up at Mum

And quietly squeaked ‘Hello’


Mum froze on the spot

Couldn’t believe what she saw

I didn’t mean to frighten you

But what are you doing on my floor?


The princess told her story

How she’d lived in her house for years

In pencil cases and tiny cars

Anything really that appears


Mum thought for a moment

Then gave some exciting news

She could stay in their house for evermore

She hoped she wouldn’t refuse


The family always wanted a pet

Someone to look after and feed

A pretty tiny real princess

Was definitely fun guaranteed


And so it was, the princess stayed

Living and sharing the fun

Visitors flocked to see the girl

Sharing stories to everyone


The children forgave Mum and her slippers

Enjoyed the fun and laughter

And Mum decided in all her years

This was the best happy ever after
