The Cobra - Richard Fleming

The cobra can’t resist a tune
so when the Charmer blows his flute,
to make the notes rise in the air,
the cobra stirs and follows suit.

It is a most amazing sight:
the tourists clap and toss rupees
while others, far less prosperous,
remunerate with loud whoopees.

Majestically, the cobra sways
from right to left, then left to right.
Applaud it, even if you’re bored:
it’s always best to be polite.

Richard Fleming

Boris Brontosaurus - Oscar Milde

Boris, Boris, Brontosaurus,
crashing blindly through the forest,
hair askew, complexion pinked,
destination indistinct,
doesn’t know that he’s extinct.

Land of Hope and Glory - Marcel Le Clerc

They call this the land of hope and glory
Another 4 years
Another world cup
This time it's going to be a different story

The planets are aligned
It's written in the stars
We gave the world the beautiful game
Now's the time to take back what is rightfully ours.

The three lions are going to roar
Kane is gonna score
We're going to beat the unbeatable
Defeat the undefeatable
And become kings of the world once more...


Marcel Le Clerc

First Date, Last Date - Stephen A. Roberts

he's excited about tonight

an assignation in the city

there will be girls there

and boys too, he doesn't care

he stares into the mirror

smiles, neatens his hair

arranges his new stuff

it's all now ready to wear

the future's looking bright

he's dressed to kill tonight

Stephen A. Roberts
