Young Mr Hubbard went to his cupboard

    For things for his Indian curry,

But what he saw there really caused him to stare,

    And he left in a bit of a hurry.


For there on the shelf, sitting all by himself,

    Was a little mouse eating his bread.

So young Mr Hubbard shut the door of his cupboard

    And the family had ?.........   instead.
