At The Shooting Gallery - Poem by David Darbyshire

The twins and I, went to the Fair
We had lots of money and not a Care
We went on the Bump Cars
After they were both seeing Star's
They also liked to pull the Strings
And get all sorts of cool Things

Then we went to the shooting Gallery
Were I spent most of my Salary
I began to Aim
A + O did the Same
I'm a bit of a sharp Shooter
So the twins, I began to Tutor

They both shot dead Straight
And they didn't even Hesitate
They also both had Keen Eye's
Both shot well and won a Prize
Now they had to fight over the Size
They decided on the biggest, very Wise


P.S. A + O = Aden and Owen

    It reminds me of every fair I've ever been to which just goes to show how good the imagery is here. Nice one again, Dave. (Report) Reply
