A bit of Nonsense!

That lovable mad Irish poet Totalfeckineejit, is having a virtual grand gala and has invited us all to arrive in red cars. We are asked to post a poem on our blogs to announce our arrival and we must be there by Friday, so here goes:-
.
Oh heck! I'm sure I'm going to be late
and I'll never catch the ferry.
There are miles to drive to a handy port
and I've been at the cooking sherry!
If I borrow my son-in-law's fire engine
and turn the siren on
I'll be sure of a clear run straight to the coast
and no-one will notice I've gone.
I'm off to the bash of the century
with the finest refreshments by far
and I'll be the one with the biggest,
loudest, shiniest, reddest RED CAR!!

Love it Heather - still giggling at the thought of you driving the fire engine.

Heather said...

It's all lies!! I'm not even brave enough to drive a car any more - however, in a fire engine I'd be able to plough through anything that got in my way, so look out!!

What a gem! Laughed out loud, loved the port and then sherry lines, and the culmination of "est"s leading to RED CAR|
