Mad Aunt Bernards Tortoise Poetry

"The page to come and visit for a fabulously sensible intake of poetry straight from the divinest of inspiration - and it's only a bit tortoisy. A cracking good read if you're under anaesthetic."

Heavy Coat

I was born in 1850,
Not yesterday like you think.
So you don't fool me with your pleading
About posting this heavy coat to Aunt Bench.
The buttons make it much too heavy you shriek,
And the weight will increase the price.
I'll cut them off like you think best,
But I won't send them seperately like you say.
So I've put them in the pockets instead.
The scales won't know where they are, will they?
