Birds
I think it's a goose
But it could be a duck
I'll get out my bird book
And have a quick look.
...fuck!

Owl
The commonest bird in Great Britain
Not sea bird, not game bird, not fowl
This bird's to be found in your kitchen
It's every day name, the Teat Owl.

The old Duke of York

The Old Duke of York
The old Duke of York
Purchased a hawk
Although it could squawk
It just would not talk.

it was swapped for an auk
Born and raised in New York
But the bird was a mawk
And could not even walk.

With a sharp tomahawk
And a burned piece of cork
It got a mohawk
So the neighbours did gawk.

So, he then chose a stork
With a preference for pork
Which it ate with a fork
That old Duke of York.

What a dork!

Teeth
Peggy had very bad teeth
And no healthy gums underneath
Dentist fantastic
Made a set out of plastic
Which. to her young son, she bequeathed.

Ponder

Ponder
I pondered the meaning of life
Gave it some serious thought
The answer, the edge of a knife
Either beer, or then again, sport.

Granddad loved his dogs
He'd kept them all his life
So when he popped his clogs
He left one to his wife.

The Ant

The Ant
Tony, a five legged ant
Had to walk to his nest on a slant
Friends bought him a stick
To help him walk quick
And motability gave him a grant.

Coronavirus days

Coronavirus Days
In happier days
To paraphrase
Folk led a great existence
Now they deep clean
Covid 19
And keep their social distance.
