Desert X-ing

Illustration by: Will Terry



Desert X-ing


The animals gathered around the map
Too many miles to measure
They'd searched the desert all night long
And couldn't find the treasure

Cat used up eight of his nine lives
And rabbit limped, not hopped
Chameleon could only change his mind
When suddenly they stopped

Dog paused and then he turned the map
A smile grew from his frown
"Well here's the reason, we were lost
The map is upside down"
