Speedy Construction had a target to meet,
In a month the shop they were building had to be complete.
But they suddenly hit granite and work had to stop,
They had no picks,serious,no bonus,no shop.
They were next door to a toy shop with life sized teddy bears,
Each holding a pick while sat in their chairs.
They asked the toy shop owner if they could borrow the picks
"Certainly" he said "as long as they are back for half past six."
They worked for three hours and had the job licked,
But while they were not looking they had their picks knicked.
They were all dumfounded when a passer by commented,
"Didn't you know that today's the day
The teddy bears have their picks knicked!"
