A Band Done Meant


Today the kids and their Mama

Have journeyed forth a little far,

O’er blazing fires they have flown

Which back on their own route have blown,

Till in Cape Town they duly landed

Where family won’t leave them stranded,

For Endless River’s the end game

(Rivier Sonder End the proper name!}

Tonight with Loki locked in house

He had a simply awful grouse,

And yelled and yelped, quite in the mood

To wake up all the neighbourhood!

Next problem was the Toby fate,

He sat and wept inside the gate,

And when I tried to fetch him down,

He simply circled back, the clown!

So I have given up on him —

To come to cottage, he’s too dim!

And so this over-faithful chum

Will wait for people who won’t come.

But Loki’s paid for playing ball —

He’s sleeping in our lounge, and all!

  1. Shame, I always feel sorry for the pets when people go away. Nice that you can look after them.
