Welcome to my first attempt. I am not normally known for penning verse but I decided to have a go. Expect an eclectic mix of humour and social observation. I may also stand on several soap boxes.
Let’s start with a comical one about my own efforts to save the world.
When entering these premises
Would visitors please note
You don’t have to take your shoes off
But you may remove your coat.
There’s four of us who live here
That’s all I have to say
So if you hate our hairy babies
Turn round and go away.
We’re very eco-friendly
Palm-oil products are all banned
As are meat and “dolphin-dangerous”
We care about the land.
I knit my own house slippers
From discarded plastic waste
Not wanting to eat butter
To the margarine I haste.
But wait! The mage is palm-oil!
So now I’m real confused
Do I save the poor orang-utans
Or see a cow abused?
