Sally the Salamander sat in a tree,
Looking around to see what she could see.
Then came a fly and it sat on her back,
Frightening her into a panic attack.
As the fly tried to tell her everything was alright,
“I will not hurt you, your friend I will be,
I’m just a fly who likes to sit in a tree.”
Sally then stopped, when she’d heard what he said,
And finally realized she had nothing to dread.
“Oh, I’m so sorry; I thought you were a bee,
that poisonous, dreadful, killer bee.
But now I can see that you’re simply a fly
And what I’m telling you next is going to make you cry.
See I am a salamander and what I do best,
Is slurp up flies that make themselves pests,
So thanks for your offer of friendship today,
But you’ll now be my snack to keep my hunger at bay!
