Colin The Cumberland Sausage - Poem by Orlando Belo

Colin the Cumberland sausage,
was as happy as a pig in mud.
The Master Butcher had made him,
for the table of Mr Wood.

So full of beans was Colin,
he was nearly bursting his skin.
He was proudly wrapped in paper,
for the errand boy to deliver him.

Colin the Cumberland sausage,
was delivered the very same day,
to Publican Wood at the Barley Mow pub,
who would cook him straight away.

Colin was unwrapped and laid out on the table,
ready to go in the pan.
However, Wuffer the dog entered the kitchen,
and took Colin in his mouth and ran.

Now nobody knows what became of Colin,
we assume he was eaten by the dog,
but don't be surprised to see Colin's brother,
on the menu of the Barley Mow pub.
