Chips - Poem by Tom Allport

Mr Dick Tator
Got a job
As an assistant
In a fish and chip shop
One of his first tasks
Was to batter the fish
But because he wasn't a violent man
He decided to only make chips.

    Batter the fish- - WA HAHAHAHAHA!
    Perhaps with a name such as his, he'd be better suited to politics? (dictator.)
    Immensely enjoyed!
