Poets’ Corner – by Bob
From our Resident Bob at Tudor Village:
How to get the police
Old Bill’s got noises outside his house,
Someone trying to break in,
Maker sure everything is locked,
Then quickly, give the police a ring.
“I’ve got an intruder trying to get in”
“Is he actually in the house sir”
“No”, “I’m sorry sir, we are too busy,
Ring us, if he gets into the house.
Bill rings them two minutes later,
“Don’t worry, he’s dead, I shot him,”
It only took a minute,
Police cars bursting to the brim.
The threat from the intruder,
Very quickly disappeared,
As he made a quick escape,
Because all the police appeared.
When questioned by the police
“You said you shot him”
Carefully, Bill replied,
“Yes, an you said, you were too busy”
Thank you Bob, funny and a little bit naughty!
