Sweets to eat
Yay! Another contribution has come in - thanks to Alison there - and as I promised, here is a poem about sweets. It has absolutely nothing to do with The Infinite Powers of Adam Gowers; it's just a bit of doggerel I wrote for fun, but I thought it would entertain us as we wait for more people to join us in the Shed.
SWEETS TO EAT
There was Herbert with his sherbet,
there was Molly with her lolly,
there was Emma with her M & M's
and little chocolate stars;
there was manly little Stanley
with his seven bars of candy,
there was Brian with his Lion Bar
and Martin with his Mars.
There was Brewster with his Joosters,
there was Shaka with his Tracker,
there was Gary with his Galaxy
and jelly beans for Joan;
there was Roland with his Rolos,
there was Polly with her Polos,
there was Wally with his Werthers
and Tahmina's Toblerone.
There was Shirley's Curly-Wurly
and Theresa had Maltesers;
there was Corky with his Yorkie,
there was Tessa with her Twix;
there was little Jenny Joffy
with her coffee-flavoured toffee;
there was 'Arry with his Aero
and Parvarti's Pick'n'Mix.
But pity poor old Sue -
she only had a penny chew.
And pity poor old Trevor -
he had nothing whatsoever!
