One Single Impression: Shortcut

Dad had said we'll get there faster
he was ever famous for tricks
he took a neat shortcut that day
was a longcut the kids all said
Try as he may dad was stymied
he couldn't get across the tracks
no getting around them either
don't go that way the kids all said
Was eight Dad and the kids came home
missed their supper chicken was gone
leftovers cold they had to eat
shouldn't have gone the kids all said
