nonsense rhyme


save my little ice cream cone
from the hungry crocodile
attempting to purloin it
on the golden mile
he’s already eaten one you see
it was a Ninety Nine
but this is just one Cornetto
which he can see is mine.


Fun With Flags

you can line a little budgie’s cage
build a hammock on the shore
wrap your butties in them
if you’re on a walking tour
as a blanket for some puppies
or cut them up for rags
make bunting for a party piece
stitch them into shopping bags
make a teddy for a baby’s crib
or a curtain for your door
but never raise them on your poles
and follow them to war.
