September Poem of the Month
Rhyme and Reason
By C.Bullock, 6919 & W. Lyons, 3697 (Kesteven)
If you have a little time
Here you’ll find some hints in rhyme.
No job is bad enough to shirk,
So never mind how hard you work.
Remember when you have to hoe
That plants must stay and weeds must go.
And if you’re put to picking ‘tates,
Try not to lag behind your mates:
For the faster goes the spinner
Then the quicker you’ll grow thinner.
When setting plants please concentrate;
Remember you must go straight.
And if you stand upon a stack
Just look around ‘ere stepping back.
No mucky plugs when on the tractor:
You’ll find this is a vital factor.
And when you’re asked to drive a dray
mind the gateposts on the way.
Don’t stay at home and mope away
The time that’s left for you to play.
Make a call on Mrs. Brown,
And ask if Lizzie’s mumps are down.
At night go to the W.I.,
You will enjoy it if you try.
And if you’re fed up try to grin,
Remember we’ve the war to win.
