Teddy picked up Goat from School.
Goat had grown accustomed to a lift home
Especially if lacrosse
Was last period.
Teddy’s sandals were too tight
So she replaced them with lace-ups
This was fine until worm
Came round for coffee.
Teddy and Goat were at the Opera.
Teddy had trouble following the story
So goat gave her some tips.
Is like a sneeze
It tells you something is wrong
It’s a tease.”
Teddy thought she understood
But still found the rhythm troubling.
Teddy was driving with Goat.
Goat was playing I-Spy with Eel.
This was made difficult by Eels insistence
That Goat play in shorts.
“That’s not really fair” said Teddy to Goat
After all, you know all the answers.
Teddy trod the wobbly bridge
It made her hair stand on end.
“How embarrassing” she whispered
Passing a man she recognised
From the National Childbirth Trust.
Teddy lost Wallet – oh disaster
Teddy sneezed reaching for her inhaler
For her asthma
But she knew the
Would come home later
As she would not have the
Teddy’s soap was pineapple flavour
This confused Snail
As pineapples tended to trip him up
But he thought he would risk it
And enjoyed a weekends skating.
Teddy saw a rainbow
She thought this was strange so
Teddy wanted to be a pilot
But in planes he was sick a lot
Especially after Apple Charlotte
So he decided it was not
A good career path.
Instead he would be a crooner
Then all the koalas would swoon a
Lot and throw their bloomers
And he would get to sing a tune a
Bit like Kiri Te Kanawa.
