I might have told you this before, in days gone by (these days of yore) That I live in a ground floor flat with space to store each coat and hat And I am very comfy, me, with central heating, lots of tea And coffee which (in my opinion) is much nicer! Like a minion……..
Y’know, those little naughty toys, the joy of girls and joy of boys, Which flit around, do dreadful things, like eating scrumptious little wings Which they pull off of flies and such ‘cos they enjoy them very much Which brings me to my point to-day, which I’ll now share, that’s if I may!
There are two dryers (ro-ta-ry), and with the snow the other day They now were coated in pure white, and as I gazed out with delight I saw within my daft old mind two spider’s webs……..a different kind Because they were so very large, some giant spiders were in charge!
Oh, they were really beautiful – the webs I mean, ‘cos as a rule I’m really not so very keen on those arachnids which I’ve seen……….. They scuttle here, they scuttle there, they scuttle right beneath my chair They even tangle with my wool! And that’s a “no no” as a rule!
But let’s get back into this plot, ‘cos this old daft bat hasn’t got A lot more time to spend with you……’cos other things I have to do Like ironing, washing up, and do some housework (poor old me, boo hoo!) So I am quickly writing out this po-yum which is all about
Those dryers (two) in this back green; more pretty than I’ve ever seen As they are covered now in snow and ice and make a lovely show…….. In my imagination I can see that they now house p’haps two or three New groups of spiders which, at night, when humans are all out of sight
And safe asleep within each bed, and daily worries they have shed To dream perhaps of pleasant things like flowers, birds upon their wings Which flit about the shrubs and trees searching for crumbs with which t’appease Their hunger, and feed their own brood in each wee nest, however crude
They be…………………..but there I go again! Back to the plot, and only then Can I indulge in coffee (hot - a huge great jar of which I’ve got…………….) So giant spiders, and their webs in this back garden of us plebs Though upside down, don’t think I’ve seen such webs so big and so serene
And, after all is said and done, we have got two, and not just one!..... And now my calculator, I’ve brought to my desk as I contrive To work out (or to calculate) how many steps – perhaps create A higher count than others, who indulge in this step-challenge too!
I know it’s just a bit of fun, but I would like to think I’d won! As with the other steps I’ve took* that all adds up, and in my book I’ve worked out – and I’ve been true – that’s five eight zero zero – woo!! That’s quite some score! More than I’d thought! Perhaps more than the ones you’ve got!
I don’t think that t’will be enough to win! I’m made of sterner stuff So will just go and fetch my wool and knit (which I do as a rule Each day) and with great pleasure stare out of my window at the glare Of those huge webs, which sit so bright and so so so so very white!
*poetic licence – I know correct grammar and the word, it should be “taken” but absurd The line would be! What rhymes with “taken”? Maybe it could be “forsaken” But, that word would not make sense – and it would be far too intense So I’ll just say “Ta ta!” from me…………………………….and go and make that cup of tea!!
