Because I Am Seesawing

"Why do you carry hamsters in your pockets?" demanded Mrs. Pringle [F]

She asked me that same question fourscore times each day [Karin]

I said, "But, ma'm, you see, it gives me quite a tingle." [F]

Each and every time I responded the same way [Karin]

To change the pace one afternoon, I said, "So tell me, Mrs. P. [F]

Where should I carry hamsters, if not inside my coat?" [Beefy ]

Her answer was ridiculous. She said, "Let them run free." [F]

Foolishly I complied - they were eaten by my stoat [Karin]
