Shoe Shopping

Millicent the Millipede

Today we're going shopping
There is no time to lose
My daughter Milly's desperate
To go and buy new shoes.
We've had to save up hard to get
Enough money to use,
For Milly is a millipede;
She's many pairs to choose!

Minibeasts Indeed!

Alternative meaning
Milly peed, and when she did sadly someone spied her
