When a pretty young thing named Sandi McLeich
Was training a vole to walk on a leash,
't gave the cord a quick gnash
And escaped in a flash;
And sactuary sought with a leech in a niche.

Pete the vole came running
Saying he was just funning
So together they walked to the beach.

It proved more than one vole could eat
But more soon arrived

And all of them wanted a treat.
