Monkey and me, were drinking tea
And feasting on fruit cake
But then I felt a rumble, and
The earth began to shake

"I think there's going to be a storm
So we'd better pack up"
Said Monkey "Oh, it's all my fault
I hic-cupped in my cup"

Not sure of the last line. I thought perhaps "I hic-ced inside my cup" Any thoughts?

You let the little monkey start to hic-cup! I did too. Nice verse. I had been trying different solutions to this since Monday. Not so easy to get it together, but you did it!
Best wishes
