Super Fire Fighting Gecko,
Scrambles so quickly,
Rapidly as you please!
Reaches the offending fires burning,
Licks them frantically,
Heat’s now gone –
Offenders are learning!
His tongue is the answer,
The spittle causes the end,
Of the work of nasty little firebugs who should have stayed home in their beds instead.
Gecko’s a hero,
Each day he does the town proud,
“GECKO, GECKO YOU’VE SAVED US ALL!” could be heard screamed by a rambunctious crowd.
