A Story in Limericks

There once was a rat named Soigné
She was born the month before May
She was Sinai’s sister,
But nobody missed her
When she got lost in the forest astray.

One day someone noticed (Sinai)
When she didn’t see her, she said, “My!
“My sister’s not here–
“She was always a bit queer…
“…I think I’ll just leave her behind.”

Soigné was sitting in the forest
Suddenly she saw a huge sparkly horse
It had one horn
(It was a unicorn)
She lost her voice, so she said in Morse:

“Oh Please, great equine
“Would you be so kind
“As to carry me away
“I promise I’ll pay–
“Here, take some fur of mine*”

The unicorn looked at her and said,
“I’d really rather be dead
“Than touch this fur
“That makes me think ‘brrr’
“Also why are you tapping with that lead?”

Soigné tried to explain,
But the unicorn had made it plain
When he galloped into the sky
Screaming “I LOVE SINAI!”
That he didn’t care where she remained.
