Jack and the Beanstalk

Jack and the Beanstalk

Jack climbs to the top of the beanstalk
With red face and sweaty palms
He clambers over the topmost branch
With aching legs and aching arms

He hauls himself up to the Giant’s kingdom
Shaking with dread and fear
A shadow is cast over poor Jack
The Giant is coming near

Jack isn’t as fit as he could be
The Giant’s taller than he’d been told
It isn’t looking good for Jack
He’s not feeling terribly bold

His courage has completely gone
He falls down to his knees to pray
But the Giant’s a gluten free vegan
So Jack’s going to be okay.
