Mrs Asbury bought three bananas from the greengrocers. She took them home and put them in her fruit bowl, along with the other fruit that was already in there. Apples, oranges, pears and grapes. One by one the fruit started to be picked out of the bowl and eaten.
Well, Keith, one of the Bananas, did not want to be eaten by himself he wanted to be eaten in style. He squeaked, “I want to be eaten with cream and cherries or I am going to stay in this bowl.” stay, he did. He thought he had been forgotten about, in fact he was quite wrong and then someone unzipped him.
He yelped, “You can’t eat me on my own, I want more” and then, a magic thing happened. He shouted “FREEDOM” and sprouted legs and he ran through the door. He was half way through the door, but then, he was caught. He could now see there was cream on the table and there were cherries as well. He had such a lovely feeling inside and he was happy too. Now, his dream had all come true.
Keith the Banana was unzipped and on the run,
He had been watching the other fruit
Be eaten one by one!
Keith, wanted to go in style, he wanted more fun
He thought people had forgotten about him and he was prepared to run!
In fact he was quite wrong.
He was going to be turned into a banana boat,
but that’s when it all went wrong.
He sprouted legs he was off,
running through the door.
He was going that fast,
that his feet came off the floor.
He was flying through the air,
gliding on his way.
Heading for freedom!
Well, that’s what he did say.
But then, he got caught, but it all ended very well,
because not only was he eaten with cherries,
It made him feel rather swell.
HE WAS NOT EATEN ON HIS OWN,
HE HAD CHEERIES AND CREAM.
HE HAD IT ALL,
THIS WAS HIS DREAM,
HE DID NOT WANT, ANYTHING MORE.
