Butter…and then some more!


What a nice old farmhouse!

What a nice old farmhouse!

“Butter…and then some more!”

I enjoyed my stay in the farmhouse,
Just me, and Bertie and Lisa and her pet mouse.
We’d play by the old mill-pond
Bertie was Blofeld and I’d be Bond.

Lisa kept to herself up in the farmhouse,
She’s sit around and play with her pet mouse.
Meanwhile outside beside the old gravel pit
Bertie and I would lay on our backs and spit.

As the summer ground on and the farmhouse got warm
Lisa appeared from out of our dorm.
Her pet mouse, his name was something like Clover
Was quickly eaten up by the old farmdog Rover.

I enjoyed my stay in the farmhouse,
Just me, and Bertie and Lisa and her dead pet mouse.
I’d be a vicar, Bertie was Yul Brynner
Lisa mourned as Clover became Rover’s Sunday dinner.

N.B. You can hear “Butter…and then some more!” being read by Radio 4 legendary broadcaster John Waite by clicking in the POETRY AUDIO widget at the top right of this page!
