*4 Postman's Knock - Poem by John Knight
I love the morning post - I love to hear the postman's knock
I love to hear the letters dropp - I hope they don't contain a shock
We take it all for granted - the morn - the mail - the man
We write and post our letters - and pop them in the can
One might be for Cornwall - one might be for Spain
Send them gaily on their way - and trust they're not in vain.
I love to hear the postman - bring the morning post
Lots of lovely letters - for reading with me toast.
A birthday card for Aunty Flo
My birthday was ten weeks ago
I'll not complain stick out my neck
For it contained a ten pound cheque
Letters from my creditors - letters from my friends
Circulars and junk mail - adverts without end.
Letters from all parties - asking me to vote
Begging letters form abroad - wanting a ten pound note
Alas because of emails - they're quick and cheap and short
Postman's knock is under threat - no stamps are being bought
To keep the system going - please send me a letter
From you to me from me to you - the more we send the better! ! !
