Smile Only Stopped By My Ears 6.19.2008 - Poem by Margaret Alice

Watching pigeons fighting World War II,
pigeons admitting to loving pink with the
help of truth serum, Nici wants to watch
“Valiant” instead of “The Weakest Link”

We see Pigeon Soldiers meeting up with the
French Resistance - Mouse Division, she says
I am “Charles De Girl” introducing herself;
my smile is only stopped by my ears

There is Roland the Mad Mouse Expert in
Sabotage; Squad D must take a message
through France; guarded by Pigeon-Eating
Falcons, “Bugsy” plays truant

But returns, becoming a hero, before Valiant
flies off with the message to far-off England
and the plans are changed – attack will be
at Normandy…


“Valiant” currently showing on channel “Movie Magic” in South Africa, and “The Weakest Link” on the BBC channel.
