Please little unicorn
why don’t you join us
for some biscuits and tea
as we sit in this field.
Please! We won’t hurt you
we just want to play with you,
and look upon your beauty
that pointy sharp held beauty
that lovely little point
of a unicorn’s horn.

Please little un icorn
don’t you run away!
We don’t want to suck your blood
or to stuff our face.
We won’t dehorn you
rob you of that singu lar thing,
that wonderful and horn y thing
that glorious sharp poin ty thing
no we will not dehorn you

Please little unicorn
why won’t you just join us?
Just briefly and kindly
as we stroll about.
We love your friends here
It is oh, so lovely here.
You protected this vale,
protected forest vale.
It’s oh, so lovely
from your magic horn.
