Did you see that sly thing slither away?
Down your palm it went,
And now, you’ve none of it for the nonce.
Do you wish you had a handful more,
Or a cupful or maybe just a pinch?
Sad life though, isn’t it?
If it’s gone, it’s gone
And oops, it never takes a U-turn.
So, no use of sighing, now that it’s gone.
