BRAKESPEARE: Poem arrives about Fenland Council leader after his shift on the bins
AN intriguing piece of poetry arrives from a Paddy McGinty whose verse is sprawled across a delightful card which, curiously, features a photo of the drawing room of Sandringham House.
Mr McGinty, or whoever, pens five verses about the attributes (or otherwise) of the Fenland Council leader, prompted it would seem by our photo last week of Councillor Alan Melton working the bins with chief executive Sandra Claxton.
Four of the five verses ought to, I fear, remain locked in my drawer but the second verse? Just about passable, so here goes:
How he climbed the ladder,
We don’t even know,
You may also want to watch:
Someone kicked his bottom,
And up, up he goes.
- 1 £100k homes scrapped 'with almost immediate effect' says Mayor
- 2 Murder suspect is victim's son
- 3 Woman, 78, suffers horrific injuries after e-scooter hit-and-run
- 4 Two men with links to Cottenham on 'most wanted' list
- 5 Fleeing heroin dealer rams police car but they get him in the end
- 6 Woman dies after being hit by lorry
- 7 Charity shop supervisor fraudster must pay back £2,550
- 8 Lorry driver loses control on motorway in booze-fuelled collision
- 9 Man arrested on suspicion of murder after death of woman in her 70s
The whole of the poem, Mr McG, I will pass on to Cllr M when next we meet – once I’ve conducted a statutory risk assessment necessary for such occasions!
