This is the lawn that’s neatly mown
’cause Tom gave Sam his drill on loan,
To return the favour of Bill and Joan,
who minded the dog when Morven was born,
Julies favourite dress at a
wedding was worn –
so Enid made sure the logs were sawn
for Patrick – who having a broken a bone,
still managed to type a CV for Vaughan,
Who gave Robyn a lift in the early morn,
Because she was still in the Twilight Zone
After working all night on painting the hall,
For running a stall,
For baking a cake
To thank their friend Dawn
For mowing the lawn …

Fiona Campbell Kincardine LETS, Fife.
