When a kangaroo goes bad

Kylie, the criminal kangaroo,
pockets some things she oughtn’t to.

A Vegemite sandwich, a kazoo,
mini bottles of hotel shampoo…

Her paws are quick and she knows kung fu.
Don't leave her alone with your pet cockatoo.

She's a burglar full of derring-do.
She fills her pouch 'til it's busting through

with watches she's pilfered in plain view
and wallets she stole, leaving nary a clue.

Careful – her next victim might be you!
Kylie, the criminal kangaroo.
