Ringed-tailed baby with your broken leg,
Bandits mask across your face,
Little hands hoping for food
So young, so trusting
Can’t tell friend from foe,
Took a bath in your drinking bowl
And sucked the yolk from the broken egg,
Came for the last time to cook marshmallows by the fire,
Where did you go, where did you go?
