A long time ago in the land of
Babylon, where a King ruled and A Knight defended the land
Crime was high , hungry thieves with intentions to steal inhabited the kingdom
Daring souls waiting to sneak into the palace
Everyone was on notice
Fearing capture The young girl, a thief carried marbles in her pocket
“God have mercy on any Knight who tripped on them”
However clever, this was a tricky situation ! The marbles had to be thrown carefully
It’s not easy to avoid the wrath of a mighty sword
Justifying the need to steal The young girl decided to sneak in that night
Knight or no knight she still paused waiting for the right moment ! When all was still!
Long time her belly ached for Food! This was the only way! “Sorry father she mumbled in her head!”
Marbles in her pocket , ready for surprises! She made it inside the palace unnoticed
No one was awakened Inside the palace! The flowers Distracted her for only a second
One lone cricket outside was chirping ! Her fears were awakened
Putting the jewels in her bag The thief slowly made her way Outside ! Her Heart beating faster! Thump Thump!
Quietly she walked ! Heart furiously beating inside of her Now, like beating drums!
Reaching the outer edge of the Kings palace , the girl was safe! Or was she?
Suddenly a Knight came towards her!Quickly reaching Into her pocket
Threw the marbles onto the ground ! The Knight fell down and the sword flew from his hand!
Unfortunately for the thief so did the bag of Precious Jewels!
Very disappointed the hungry Girl cried! All she had for her troubles was a single marble! And an adventure to tell!
What’s a poor hungry thief to do Now?
X-rays of the knight showed a broken bone in his arm!
“You’re not in trouble Young Knight, the jewels are safe” the King exclaimed
“Zero jewels were lost! “Said the Knight “The thief was so frightened, that he left behind the jewels along with these marbles!”
