Lady Haversham once said.

If one's standing on one's head,

Instead of on one's toes.

Never ever helps,

Whilst trying to blow One's nose.


While we're on the subject,

Never ask a dog to open

Closed doors.

it's very hard when one,

Only has a pair of paws.


When one falls from a ladder,

When all is said and done.

Best to make sure,

It's from the bottom rung.


While you're in a state of repose,

And if your drinking tea.

Remember to hold your pinky up,

But never up one's nose.


 For a whalebone corset,

Told a fisherman I'd pay.

One new shiny penny,

For all the whales I saw.

On that fateful day,

None were wearing any.

This one cheered me up - and don't we all need that! And I thought I felt the shade of Edward Lear on your shoulder as you composed this gem.

Nice one Alan
