Oh, Come a Bummer Do! © J.R.Poulter

Sifting salted peanuts

In between their teeth,

It’s the ooby gooby men

Who’ve come to cause us grief!

Ickle them, tickle them,

Pickle and prickle them!

Bum tiddlee um tum, bum bum BOOOO!

Run, run quickly

The traffic jam’s ickly stickly!

The oobie goos spread it too thickly

And now we’re all slushing in ooh!

Bum tiddlee um tiddlee,

What are we to do?

Alas, the iggle piggle

Nottle wattling where he wiggled

Came a proper cropper,

Went a whopper head o’ topper

In the ooby gooby gooo.

Bum diddlee um, ummm, Oh BUM!


When he went bumpty, dumpty,

Piggle thumped um up complumply!

He squashed the ooby goobies,

Squished them into blobs of doobies...


Diddlee um, diddlee bum, BOO HOOO!

Wacky Wordage - Number 1- humorous verse inspired by Mattias Adolfsson's "Let's Form a Queue"

['Let's form a queue', illustration by Mattias Adolfsson]

The Queuing by J.R.Poulter

What shall we do?

Let’s form a queue!

You cannot form a queue right here

Because it’s not to anywhere!

What’s it matter what it’s for?

It’s better than standing round being bored!

Me to the front.

No that won’t do!

You behind me.

What, can’t you see?

Well goodness me gracious

You’re NOT efficacious!

NO need to swear,

The piggle will hear!

Oh dear……

The piggle has peedled himself with fear….

Now, where’d they all go?

How should I know!?

Nothing’s doing,

No one’s queuing,

Just piggle on his own boohooing,

“I weedely wodely wunt be awone!” *

Go home!

[*Loosely translated piggleese – “I really and truly am awf’lly alone and I don’t want to be!”]
