THE YOUTHFUL COVE by Edward Lear

In medio Tutorissimus ibis.
'Thou shalt walk in the midst of thy Tutors.'

ONCE on a time a youthful cove
As was a cheery lad
Lived in a villa by the sea.—
The cove was not so bad;

The dogs and cats, the cows and ass,
The birds in cage or grove
The rabbits, hens, ducks, pony, pigs
All loved that cheery lad.

Seven folks—one female and six male,—
Seized on that youthful cove;
They said—'To edjukate this chap
Us seven it doth behove.'

The first his parrient was,—who taught
The cove to read and ride,
Latin, and Grammarithemetic,
And lots of things beside.

Says Pa, 'I'll spare no pains or time
Your school hours so to cut,
And sqare and fit, that you will make
No end of progress—but—,'

Says Mrs. Grey,—'I'll teach him French,
Pour parler dans cette pays—
Je cris, qu'il parlera bien,
Même comme un Francais—Mais—'

Sing a Song of Sixpence by Anonymous

Sing a song of sixpence,
A pocket full of rye,
Four and twenty blackbirds
Baked in a pie.


When the pie was opened
The birds began to sing—
Wasn't that a dainty dish
To set before the king?


The king was in the counting-house
Counting out his money,
The queen was in the parlor
Eating bread and honey,


The maid was in the garden
Hanging out the clothes.
Along came a blackbird
And snipped off her nose.

Friendship by Stuart Macfarlane

Friendship grows,
With every laugh,
With every tear,
With each moment of joy,
With each moment of sorrow.
Creating a union - a bond.
Growing so strong,
That two people become inseparable.
(Copyright Stuart Macfarlane)

The Dog Lovers by Spike Milligan

So they bought you
And kept you in a
Very good home
Cental heating
TV
A deep freeze
A very good home-
No one to take you
For that lovely long run-
But otherwise
'A very good home'
They fed you Pal and Chun
But not that lovely long run,
Until, mad with energy and boredom
You escaped- and ran and ran and ran
Under a car.
Today they will cry for you-
Tomorrow they will but another dog.

Epitaph For a Haggis by Stuart McLean

O hairy wee critter who,
Once lived amongst the heather,
And ran aroun’ the mountains,
Nae matter what the weather.

It seems so sad for him tae die,
Jist tae gie tae me a feast,
But it wis the hunting season,
So I shot the poor wee beast.

Stuart McLean (From No' Rabbie Burns)
