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
