The Birds

Hobbo: I’m just watching the birds in the garden.

Dauphy: And?

Hobbo: Well, everybody has had a rubbish year this year. Even those who haven’t had a personal tragedy have still had to cope with covid. The birds though, they’ve never even heard of covid. 2020 has been the same as any other year for them.

Dauphy: And me! What’s covid?

Hobbo: Never mind. It’s nothing for you to worry about.

Dauphy: Have you chosen the second song?

Hobbo: Yes. This is for anyone who has lost a loved one this year, and everybody else who has had a difficult year. It’s called Lonely this Christmas and it’s by a group called Mud.

Dauphy: Wow, that’s emotional!

Hobbo: You’re crying?

Dauphy: I was thinking of Bella.

This smelly, dirty mud
In which I have been stood
I hate it, it's no good.

You really are a wuss
We don't expect such fuss
From hippopotamus.
