Clarisse - Matilda Livesey
Who disregarded her parents' wisdom, and perished as a result.
Clarisse devotes her life to fruit,
She keeps her spares within her boot
Her parents warned her not to eat
The crunchy seeds within the treat
Alas, one day, she disobeyed,
And set their lives to disarray
The doctors tried the best they could
although they were so very good,
A little seed is hard to find
And very slowly she declined
A little seed started to grow
And mould her body like it was dough
And so she turned into a tree
Short and stout for all to see.
