Poem for Rebe

 Poem for Rebe

Everywhere you go you’ll see her Halewood way,
You’ll see her at the crack of dawn and at the close of day,
Through rain and wind and sunshine
She’s out and she’s about
She’s not one for going slowly if you see you must shout
and then give chase
cos she’s a racer
she’ll zoom and beep her hooter.
She’s the queen of these here highways
Rebe and her trusty scooter!
Good bye Rebe Tuesday
We all shout as past she goes
With her bags on carribinas
And her face all pink it glows
Life with Rebe
Is a journey
And the scooter eases pain.
Ride it with her
here on Halewood way
through wind and sun and rain.

Poem for Barbara

 Inspired by the Knit and Natter Group that meet every week to knit for the Premature Baby unit.

Poem for Barbara

I only came to vote here
Now they won’t let me go
And now I bring my knitting
It stops me getting low
I knit and knit and knit and knit
And then I knit some more
I knit so much I’ve covered up the ceiling, walls and floor
And now the irony of it is
I cannot find the door!

You gotta laugh or else you’ll cry
Write a poem don’t ask why.

Boat Trouble by Tom Glow

Boat trouble
In '92  I bought a boat
I was so made up I didn’t half gloat.
It was made of wood
And twenty foot long.
It didn’t cost much,
I got it for a song.
The rotten wood it didn’t half stink
And the missed out holes it made him sink.
The final touch was the rest of the boaters
They had a good laugh cos they all had floaters!
Anchors away!
