In summer hair lice go away

Heading on their holidays

But before they get to their resort

They must check-in at the hair port


Wigs on runways fuelled with shampoo

Lousy pilots and lousy crews

On planes of manes of human locks

Start the engines and remove the chocks


From bouncy curls

To greasy follicles

Some lice like clean hair

Others find it diabolical


And some lice don't fly

Their mortal dread?

Crash landing on

A hairless head!

There once was a ghost of a pigeon

Who was more dead than alive, just a smidgen

Whenever he'd coo

He only went Boo!

And could scare all the cooks in a kitchen

Featured Poem


“When will I stop growing?”

A giant asked his mummy

“I've grown at a rate

Of one meter a day

Ever since I left your tummy”


"That's 7 meters every week

Or 365 a year

Times twelve because it's

My birthday soon

Which makes 4380 meters quite clear"


“I hope that I stop growing”

The giant he did sigh

As he pulled a bird

Out of his ear

And a plane out of his thigh.
