Here we go, here we go, here we go1
Danny’s at the wheel2
We’re here, we’re there… 3

Is this a library? 4
My garden shed is bigger than this
It’s got a door and a window
My garden shed it bigger than this 5

We forgot that you were here 6
It’s nice to know you’re here… 7
You must have come in a taxi 8

You don’t know what you’re doing 9

He fell over 10
You’re going home in a Pompey ambulance 11
It’s a miracle! It’s a miracle! 12

Is there a fire drill? 13
We can see you sneaking out 14
You’ll never make the station 15

Taxi for Carter 16
Bye-bye, bye-bye 18

Who ate all the pies? 19
You...! 20

  1. A vicious one to end the month. Tell me, did you notice that crucial five words from your most memorable poem this month made their way into my yesterday’s cento? I don’t know if you got the pingback. Have a look and find it. And thanks.

    1. Dear Manja, I have been rushing around today…I’ll just pop over to have a look! Thank you for the tip off! 🙏

  2. ‘Is this a library’ is particularly brutal I feel! 😂🖤

    1. 3-1 and you still don’t sing

      1. Love it 😊😊🖤
