Lin and the Biscuit Tin

When a young lady named Lin
Jumped out of my biscuit tin,
And I said, with a glare,
“What were you doing in there?”,
She said, “you shut me in!”.

Jumped out of my biscuit tin

And I have grown sad and thin!”.

Said, “the establishment they always close ranks!”.

Wednesday Morning Humour

There was a young lady named Lou
Who was fond of the high-heel shoe,
But when she wore them in bed
Her mother’s face turned bright red,
And she said, Lou, “this really wont do!”.

Is fond of the high-heel shoe.
Her boyfriend called Ted
Sleeps under the bed,

Lives near an ancient peat bog.

Whilst Hogg’s away in that bogg.

When A Literary Critic Named Lee

Came round to mine for tea,
I offered him some cake,
Which he failed to take,

Blind Publican

Last night, I had a dream in which I had agreed to work in my local pub. Being blind, this would, no doubt have been a very interesting experience for me and the customers of that esteemed establishment.
My peculiar dream led to the composition of the below rhyme.

When a blind man whose name is Grub
Got a job in his local pub,
Those wanting brandy
Got lemonade shandy,
But the grub, it was really quite good!
