Friends Helping Friends?
By Beth Beutler
  

1     
"Before we leave,"
The big whale confessed,
"We should clean up
This terrible mess."
 
2     
"But why?" said the fox.
"Don't bother," he chimed.
"We've played all afternoon
It's now my hunting time."
 
3     
So away the fox trotted
Off through the trees.
The whale and other friends were left
With a big mess, you see.
