Stop the Mop
Bob started to mop.
Bob did not stop.
“Stop!” cried Tom.
“Stop what?” asked Bob.
“Stop the mop!” said Tom.
“Drop the mop?” asked Bob.
“Yes,” said Tom.
Bob did drop the mop.
The mop did not go plop, flop or pop.
It went bang.
“Why did I need to stop and drop the mop?” asked Bob.
“I don’t like wet floors,” said Tom.
