“Pob-bob-bob!” said the gull.

“Pob-bob-Bob!” said the gull.

“Yes.” I replied, but it should be ‘Pob-bob-bob-bob!’ as I have ‘two’ dogs.

“Pob-bob-bob-bob!” said the gull, correcting its earlier error.

“Precisely!” I said, ‘“You’ll get it right next time.”

“Pobbbbbb!” said the gull, which really wasn’t a very nice thing to say at all.

It all got a bit ‘Buntled!’

As I wendelled my weary way,

I was wary that, one day,

I might be steeply inclined

to walk up a hill;

but, still, I thought to myself,

that’s probably


going to happen today.

Two hours later, looking back

(and looking down)

I realised


it might feel

to be a clown,

or (more likely)

a cloud.

Wandering about wondering

it really shouldn’t be allowed.

A finite amount of something

Wed-nes-day Sen-ry-u

Wed-nes-day: Bin Day;

since ‘twas Midnight, I would say;

but, that’s just my way.

List Poem (not so much a poem, more a bit of a list) Revisited.

2M extension lead.

ended up with 3M sort –

better too long

than too short.

3-pin plug.

Decided not –

as happy with the 3M lead I got.

Connector for waste.

Struggled to find;

nearly went out of my mind,

until I found an expensive kit,

that includes the relevant bit.

PS then I found a cheaper kit,

still with the relevant bit,

so, I bought it.

valve for water supply 3-way.

Got a connector that will do the job,

at a cost of four pounds

and (nearly) ten bob.

T-piece 15mm.

After finding the previous item

(which would do just fine)

decided not to make one of these mine.

A doodah.

Too expensive

(I said to myself)

so I left it loitering

upon a sturdy shelf.

All in all,

a successful trip,

took quite a while,

now I’m ready for a kip.

NB a ‘bob’ is a shilling in old money; and a ‘kip’ is a deserved sleep required for the recuperation of the soul after any shopping trip.

Why do verbs suddenly appear?

Why do verbs suddenly appear

every time you are near?

Is it something you are doing?

Laughing Like a Seagull

I was so happy

that I could have laughed like a Seagull;

and, so I did.

There I was

There we were, the four of us, in the picture, standing tall – I was the one in the middle.

Upon the theme of ‘Shop, Shoop, Sheep, and Sheeps’

It is time for change.

One sheep, should (IMHO), be called a ‘Shoop’ and a baby ‘Shoop’ should be called a ‘Shop’.

I know that, to save confusion, we would then probably have to rename the old ‘sell-stuff, buy stuff’ “shop” places to something else – perhaps they could be called ‘Buy-Places’ – and then we would be sorted out for the duration.

Sheep could relate to sheep numbering 2 to 20, and ‘Sheeps to 21 Sheep and above (‘To Ovinity, and beyond!’ you might say).
