whence-thence ( ecneht-ecnehw )


alfred burnt a bridge

bridget saw the badgers


dance a rabid rumba

’twas the dog’s nadgers


brutus sang a song

judas screwed a hinge


vlad inhaled a whiff

of a fishy minge


by the harbourside

in the midland’s fog


portia saw a phantom

on a moorland bog


bertie blew a bugle

on the estuary


martha met a martian

sat on platform three


all aboard & papers

peter caught a fly


buzzing in the parlour

– why-oh-bloody-why ? –


arthur had a nap

as the sun was leaving


in that little gap

between teatime – & evening
