Parish of Dundry

Dundry & Chew Valley Poets





The postman came the other day
With a letter just to say
unless the book I'd had too long
was returned or else renewed
the next reminder would be rude!


It's always happening, every time
I have a book I get a fine!
I wish someone would tell me when
It's time to change my book again.


I'm really full of good intentions
and my excuses prime inventions
but still for all this it's no use
the fine is set, there's no excuse


Will change the heart of those in charge
The next fine will be very large.
I'll have to change my ways that's plain

Or else I'll get fined again.


This book is due back Wednesday now
But this is Friday - NO ..... OH BLOW.
