Best Poem of John Hegley

Bonfire Night

the doors open
everyone comes out
everyone is ready
for fireworks
all except the dog
Eddie
he is shut up in the sheddie
even out of doors we have indoor fireworks
Dad says it is better to be safe than dead
the air is full of the smell of next doors fireworks
Mum says they are very good this year
this year Christopher is allowed
to help his dad to light the fireworks
he is very excited
he is very proud
he is twenty-eight

Read the full of Bonfire Night
