The Bully Of The Waves - Poem by Chris Barlow

when i traveled to the seaside
equipped with bucket and spade
the wave crashed into my sandcastle
the one id only just made

why do waves rule the beach i asked my dad
who was sniffing mums collogne
but i didnt have time to ask again because
the waves pushed over the stones

it knocked a couple out of place
it tore into the sand
i shouted out waves are bullys
and that they should stay off our land

this made them feroscious
ferociously mad
they got bigger and taller
and i really felt quite sad

go away i shouted
you are ruining this for me
your force is brushing all the sand
into my cup of tea

so i beg you mr wave
please leave us alone
as you are a bully
that crashed into the stone
