Solving the revving problems of Swedish machine
On a snow covered recipe north south musical hill
Misfiring conversations that contain no fuel
Like the empty ammunition boxes
of a museum spitfire that last flew
when we found a broken Celtic stone.
Maybe your hear a harp
When a engine from a hillman minx won’t do
eighty five miles from Salisbury
Angry feathers who took a Trips past the zoo
Only to find the eagle was a comic strip
found in a 1980’s news store
near a metal basket cut down to size.
In Which we now cycle tandems to see
a napoleonic aged fort
And learnt that fisher Price don’t have a say
over the rising price of hot chocolate
That has risen again like the owls in the night.
And learnt about not picking up hitch hikers
On wet rainy Halloween nights dress as mice.
Moscow mules don’t remove rug stains
Of spilt Turkish coffee left by imaginary friends
Taking great delight splitting hares over
Job boards and dogs that look like.
launderette shrunken celluloid bitch
That are trained to work the hot plate of
A once retired steam train now reborn
On bluebell clad dual irons.
