Poetry competition: Great Aunt Sally Kowali

August 26, 2015

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,drinking tea

– 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.
