How Would You?

Poem By David Darbyshire

To a person with no arms,
how would you greet them?
Would you offer your hand?
Or would you stand and Look?

To a person who cannot hear,
how would you say Hallo?
Would you say something?
Or just move your Lips?

To a person in a wheel chair,
looking for a seat.
would you move a chair, and make place?
or retreat with a bright red face?

The best thing to do,
in this kind of situation.
Is to treat the person normally,
try to show 'no' frustration.

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
