Bad Habits - Poem by Gavin Nelson

Hello Mr magpie how’s our wife?
Do you ever wonder that if you don’t cross the road before the beeping stops you’ll fall through?
I did. I sometimes still do it and rush to other end in time.
Do you ever wonder that if you touched a train track you’d turn into a train?
I did. I sometimes still do and always jump over the line not to touch it.
What will happen if you step on the black on a zebra crossing?
Always step on the white. I still do. Sometimes. Why?
Do you leave a little dropp of tea when you finish it?
How many times do you flick the light switch?
Can you walk on 3 drains?
Do you salute a magpie?
What do you do? What are your bad habits?
I know your bad habits!
