Is the Moon the best sort of cheese?
Perhaps, while looking at the Moon, many mice are sure
it's a great slice of cheese, and the idiom
'Crying for the moon' can be good here.
- Look at that cheese over your head.
Lucky is the mouse that can get
_____- So, you want me to throw
You to that cheese again.
_____________________- Oh, no!
- Why not?
_________- Last month when you threw,
I fell in the lake and got wet through.
- Did you fall?
___________- Mocking! You’ve thrown a lot,
I’ve fallen a lot, but what have I got?
