Allan Jacobs, late last night,
went for a little walk,
and so, today, took me aside —
he said we had to talk.
While strolling by our teacher’s house,
he thought he’d spy for fun.
But Allan said that what he saw
soon made him shake and run.
Through the kitchen window, Allan said,
he watched this scene.
He said Miss Bates had company —
an alien quite green!
He said Miss Bates was drinking tea
along with her green guest,
and they were eating chocolate cake
and talking without rest.
I’ve always thought Miss Bates was strange
and this sure would be proof,
if I could just forget that Allan
seldom tells the truth.
