Kids And Dogs And Monkey's - Poem by karen sinclair
A slippery moustached man slid along the beach
Tiny monkey tethered upon his right shoulder
'want your picture taken lady, with the lovely monkey, only 50p! '
A white boxer dog, skirted at Billy Smarts circus
Ruffled collar, leaping through (flaming) hoops
The moustached ring master flicks his tailcoat, grins and bows
Straw hatted donkeys, sweating by the beach
Small children and large ladies sucking ice-creams
race on their backs as bawdy men smile and pocket small change
Sectioned glass bowls stored head high
As fairground fodder throw hoops to try win one bemused
Golden fish, dragged home in a plastic bag, swung by a small child
But the much loved mongrel, the heinz 57 (dog) he had it best
Latch street dogs with latch street kids
Racing free as a seagull then home just before dusk
For their tea...
