Amateur Poet Bert Applies For Entry to Like-Minders Society Theme Park
Amateur Poet Bert Applies For Entry to Like-Minders Society's Theme Park
Stood at the Theme Park Entrance
Watched Minders flying by
On their rollercoaster
I wanted in, did sigh
A sign nailed to the Entrance Gate
Said welcome please come in
But need to be invited
No riff-raff taken in
Deciding I'm no riff-raff
Prepared my C and V
And sent it to their Office
For he and she to see
(Application received thanks Bert. Will pass it on to our leader and secretary. Lucy L – LMS Head of Publicity.)
(To explain. I'm leader of LMS, Thalia's my secretary while Lucy works in the office and speaks bold dialect language. I call her bold and beautiful. That's why I hired her. Thalia uses the more refined italic language, as one would expect from Muses)
Back to Bert's application:
I got my application back
They said that I had failed
Medically unfit they said
(Yes, was stamped and mailed)
(We do things the old proper way Bert. Special delivery LMS courier. Sorry about your application. What our leader says goes. He hires and pays us. Lucy L HOPLMS )
Was worth a try Eth...
Well you do have your old vertigo problem Bert........
They seemed to be having so much fun Eth......
Well they don't go green like you luv...
Can you get anti-rollercoaster-sickness pills at Tesco Eth?.....
Dunno luv...Worth a look
