Won, Too, Free
Poem By Not Long Left
won, to, free
look at me,
i can count forever.
i know that lions come from the jungle,
and that birds have things called feathers.
i know that 2 - 2 = 0
and in the winter from the sky falls snow.
i know that carrots are orange,
and come up from the ground,
and that 2, fifty pences make a pound.
i know that the sun is yellow and is very hot,
and the moon is not
it is cold and is white like cream,
and it looks down on me when i dream.
i know that pigs are pink and live in a pen,
and in space live clever spacemen,
who fight aliens and float around,
did i tell you that i know
2 fifty pences make a pound?
i learnt today that there was a man called jesus,
who did all sorts of magical things,
he made people better,
and thats why when we are in church,
we sing hymns.
what i dont know is why
people like my nan have to die,
and why elephants are so shy.
daddy says i will learn it all one day,
so for now
i am going out to play.
