Japanese Rugby

Our boys in white put up a fight
to stop the All Blacks in their tracks,
They performed a Haka but we invented rugby
So we made a human V - a V for victory!
On the field we weren't prancing or morris dancing,
we were scoring tries and advancing.
Now only the Springboks stand in our way,
C'mon let's lift the world cup trophy on Saturday.

What is a pomelo?
Not to be confused with a pedalo,
It looks like the offspring of
a grapefruit and an orange
the Frankenstein of fruits,
a botanical chimera.

It's the sized of a football,
with far less bounce,
brimming with Vitamin C
in every ounce,
It's pith is an inch thick,
if you eat it you will be sick.

Pomelo tastes a bit sour,
Jegan's not keen,
he finds the flavour obscene.
It originates from Asia
and now found in Totton,
don't keep it too long
or it will go rotten!

Daddy Long Legs

Every Autumn in the rainy season
Crane flies appear,
it's that time of year.
They fly in your face,
get caught in your hair,
for the squeamish
they are a source of despair!

What is their purpose?
What are they for?
Quite frankly
we'd like to keep them outdoors.

Spiders catch them in their webs
whilst children sit
and remove their legs
Daddy Long Legs or Mosquito Hawks
without their legs they just can't walk!
