Ode for Hazel

Cheers Joe. Congrats Becca.
Welcome Hazel Henrietta!
Two dark eyes – not too much hair
Share your birthday with John Clare.
Just halftime in the World Cup match
Perfect time for a chick to hatch.

Sharm Birds

Today I killed a white peacock,
One of a beautiful duo
Which stalked the plain,
Tails flared,
Sinuous necks erect,
Their tiny heads crested
Like flowers in bloom.

I was sad to destroy
A work of Art
But our bathroom
Was towel-less.

Yesterday
I killed two swans
Shukran, Atef…

The Toby Rap

The Toby Rap
We saw the Call with trepidation
Indulged in a deal of hesitation
How would we manage communication
How would he deal with the new dispensation
Would he expire with justified frustration
Anyway we volunteered!

Well we did have a lot of sheer frustration
Coming to terms with the situation
Tricky bath caused an inundation
Wicked chair caused mortification
Only Lyn’s foot!

Sunday night was a celebration
Feast at Mum and Dads some intoxication
Spoke about our Toby admiration
In between chat about nice vacations
Where next eh?

So we hope you survived our visitation
Without too much of bored frustration
This little ode is for your appreciation
Expresses all our admiration
Hail TOBES the Hero!
