Chirp Cheep

Poem By David Darbyshire

The bird sings,
the church bell rings.
Chirp Cheep, Ding Dong,
Nothing can go wrong.

Now the birds are silent,
and the church is empty.
Very still, not one sound,
no cat, not even a Bee.

Seems like something has gone wrong,
no birds, no people, no ding dong.
So I went to town to take a look,
On the way, funny the earth shook.

Make no mistake,
it was an earthquake.
So everyone ran and hid,
just as the birds did.

What a shame,
no one is to blame.
But now the church is overflowing,
with believers praying and singing.

I'm thinking of something Funny
And it looks a little Runny

Amsterdam (Nederland's)

I've lived in Amsterdam for quite a While
and I have found it has it's own Style
If you have an Umbrella
Your a real lucky Fella


Black cats, blue cats
white cats, grey cats
Round and thin, stray cats
Tall and short, they come in all sorts


Everything has it's Price
Just like a cup of Rice
The things we sell are not New
But do have Sentimental Value
