Ten little possums sitting in a line
But one was sitting on Big Mick's stool
And then there were nine...

Four little possums

When A. Christie wrote her 'Ten little persons' she wrote a happy and an unhappy end. Here's the happy end sensu Christie for the possums in order to come full circle and make them ten again

:
One little possum found at last a mate. She loved him, he made love to her, now they are two plus eight.

Point of logic (apologies for being non-traditional) - MMario, if there were five possoms left and they start out dead in your verse, one being resurrected would leave one.

If you were referring to the previously dead possoms - if one if one resurrected, there'd be six.

Three possoms in the Tavern One left a little poo Barb got a bazooka Now there are just two.

Hey, you can't go from possums to anti-possums just like that! Or then again, we could reverse the thread and go back down to zero again.

Nine dead possoms
Had met an early fate
One was only 'playing possum'
So there really were just eight.

Come on Guys! (using Guys in the Western sense which includes Gals) It's not often you get a good song writing exercise like this.

Four dead possums
went for burial at sea
one went to Fiddlers Green
and then there were three

Sitting on a stump

'Boy that looks like FUN!
