chickens clucked & pigeons cooed

farmers aared as pirates oohed

florists bloomed & forests greened

peasants pecked as pheasants preened

onions wept & pipers panned

cheeses rolled as breezes fanned

rivers ran & traffic crawled

otters swam as doctors scrawled

nettles stang & bishops bashed

kettles sang as rabbits dashed

gossips gobbed & curtains twitched

butchers hacked as bloggers bitched

adders danced & badgers barked

buzzards buzzed as finches larked

salmon leapt & lemons sucked

lepers scratched as pandas fucked

islands hopped & lions roared

monkeys spanked as fungi spored

while you dribbled in your nap

& the vicar caught the clap

the arm’s afoot

the arm’s afoot  (  soahk fo steet eht gniklim  )




streaming leeks & springing onions

dragons nap in beetle dungeons

bubbles, squeaks & pickled bunions

thunder rumbles under eaves


spitting creaks & twisted rivers

swarms of hornets, curtain twitchers

roman yeoman, village shitters

norman orphans, saxon reeves


bladder rasps & flapping adders

hopping otters, shropshire ladders

missing marbles, hanging daggers

hark - the yarns of weasel's weaves


trees & creepers, eager beavers

swirls of dervish, scraps of aethers

princes, paupers, sauls & peters

battered badgers - thick, as thieves


apple pips & blackened chapels

snots & sonnets - gasps of rabbles

judges slamming wooden gavels

winter wings as autumn leaves


missing parcels, posts & pillars

scraps of shrapnel, shards of mirrors

caterwauling clatterpillars

garden gnomes - with hoes & heaves


jack the ripper's jam & chutneys

mister whippy's magic monkeys

damocles's rubber duckies

reapers of the shim & sheave


squirming worms & cans of peaches

silver service, golden fleeces

purple patches, puzzle pieces

up the creases

of y' sleeves

...

two fat ladybirds  (  sdribydal taf owt  )





two fat ladybirds

twenty chocolate labradors

seven pence in shrapnel

five finger freebies

eighty gatekeepers

nine lords a leaping fjords

forty three accordions

sixty six sinnel cakes

the thirty third of maycember

four traffic wardens

twelve in the elfin wood

three spoons of sugar

sixty nine nunneries

one spring o' time

feeds the five thousand owls

plus the mutant moons of jupiter

( sixty three & counting )

- bingo
