Plumbers and Numbers.

Plumbers and Numbers.

Plumbers,

are not very good with numbers;

when they tot up the bill

sum things just don’t add up;

still, they try; and fail,

and sirens wail

from Hull to hill

from hill to Hull, and in many seaside counties

whose days are numbered in ones and twos

plumbers resort to booze;

Lead piping astray by the solution

to the problem that has no answer;

questioning the aforementioned bill of boiler service, he pipes up: ‘Life’s a gas, man!’

and drives off in his white divan.

(Poem 8 – Numbers) 25 Poems in 24 Hours


Poem 8 – 07:00 16-05-2017



Seven is a licky number

Eight is a lucky one

One is also a number

As a large number

Of numbers are.
You can always count on a number

But, after a while

Counting affects your senses

And number will you become

They will encumber

Your every moment

Until

The numberness

Stands still.

Tick

Tock

It’s time to SHOCK!

By saying

That ‘NUMBERS’

Are

DANGEROUS

and liable to

KNOCK

you for SIX!

Or SEVEN.

Numbers are, in fact,

A numerical Heaven.
