Poetry competition: Great Aunt Sally Kowali
Great Aunt Sally Kowali
Great Aunt Sally Kowali, and her centenarian friend, Miss Lally,
lived not far from one another in a cul-de-sac street.
Sally called in on Miss Lally,
who sat by the fire,
drank then wee-ed, pint sized cups of tea.
Miss Lally liked The Queen. The Queen sent Miss Lally,
– who upon reaching a milestone –
a portrait of her (by standard post),
cardigan-ed in aquamarine.
“That cardigan dunt ‘alf make ‘er eyes soft“, swooned Sally Kowali,
who one biscuit too many, and a dress-size too tight,
forced her skirt button, *pop.
