To Set Teef Really Awfully on Edge …

Let’s see what pictures I can dredge

Reflecting living on the Edge  —

For starters here is one of scores

Which shows old home on southern shores;


And this one here can show it, too:

But now, from restaurant, the view;


The drop is one that quite appals

From edge while viewing Howick Falls;


Hobserve the hedge of paving ‘ere,

And that the ‘edge ‘e clipped is clear.

Which shows just ‘ow a Cockney gets

When ‘e hattempts to ‘edge ‘is bets* …


* Actually it is beds that are edged and hedged?

  7. Being a born and bred Cockney, as my nom de plume suggests, I wish to state quite clearly that I have never been known to ‘edge me bets!
