Padraig Devlin

Rookie (Derry, Northern Ireland)


When Georgie's Grandmamma was told
That Georgie had been as good as gold,
She promised in the afternoon
To buy him a new war BALLOON.

And so she did; but when it came,
It got into the oiled flame,
And being of a dangerous sort
Exploded with a loud report!
