I’m down by law and I know my way around

This is how my mornings begin.

On waking, little Thom Thumb climbs out of his matchbox, strikes a match, and burns down the whole neighbourhood.

When the fire engines arrives, he is prepared.

He has lured three blind mice and a drunken Little Miss Moppet to the scorched remains. And in Moppet’s hand, he has gently placed the smoking match.

The rest is a fairy tale better left to adults.
