.5. Flash - Poem by David Threadgold

Faster than a speeding train
My grey-hound took the track
Fitter than a butchers dog
Red jacket on his back

Number one had always been
A lucky trap for me
They took him to the boxes
And he snarled at number three

As they placed him in the traps
He sat there very still
The other dogs all snapped and snarled
And looked like they could kill

The starter let the rabbit go
And number ones still sitting
All the others left the traps
While he just sat there knitting

He watched them half way round the bend
Then came out like a rocket
Shot past the other greyhounds
Finished first and filled my pocket
