Frank McNie's Poems
The Barn Dance

Ducky Diddle had a fiddle,
Come and dance said he.
The big red hen said come on then,
a dancing there will be.
We'll have a prize of apple pies
for the last one standing here
the cow said golly lets be jolly
and fill the air with cheer.

The music begun now so did the fun.
slowly but surely the beat
The pig was all muck but he danced with the duck
for he thought she'd be light on her feet
The pig said on the double make up a couple,
we'll dance the night away,
he could see the pies before his eyes
and would have them come what may.

The horse began prancing 
for he really loved dancing.
he couldn't find someone to hold 
his metal shoes tended to bruise
and his nose was so terribly cold.
The cow and the kitten
were really quite smitten
so decided to make up a pair
The dog, not in the habit of
dancing with rabbit
made a truce with the hare

Ducky Diddle the music master
made the music go much faster,
faster and faster the beat,
now the pig and the duck 
did a jig in the muck
and managed to stay on their feet.

The kitten and cow were really tired now
and decide to watch from the side
Porkie the pig was too lazy to jig
He jumped on the horse for a ride
Harry the rabbit feeling quite wabit
quit dancing in spite of his pride.
The dog got his tail stuck in a pale
He went chasing his tail outside 

The chicken and duck slipped in the muck
the cow jumped out of the room,
that left the pig and the horse
and the pies there of course 
the horse was beginning to swoon
Porkie said let's stop for our dinner
for I am the winner 
I'll share in my good fortune
