THWACK! Goes Shredder.
Get him! Leonardo.
Raphael and Donatello
Bring out pepperoni.
Michaelangelo is my favourite. He wears
Kick! Punch!
Then lunch
on pizza. (A good plan.)

Now we are grownups
We have forgotten THWACK! Punch!
that pepperoni favourites
wear lunch on Shredder’s pitch.
Wear blue plan good and pizza kick.
Long gone – our ninja turtle fix.
