As A Lad - Poem by Orlando Belo

Copper-knob or ginger-nut
meant I had red hair,
and that's what I was called
by everyone everywhere.
They also used this rhyme
with no concern or care.
And as a lad, their sense of humour,
I really didn't share.

‘Ginger-nut fell in the ‘cut'
and frightened all the fishes.
A whale came up
and swallowed him up,
and that was the end of ginger-nut!
