I was a bit bored,and it seemed a good idea at the time.

Today I Saw A Goblin.

Today I saw a Goblin
A funny little chap
With two red shoe's
Green pantaloons
And a feather in his hat

He turned around and looked at me
Then gave a funny grin
I pretended not to notice
And fell into a bin

I got straight up and glared at him
He just smiled and winked at me
I don't know why he did it
Then I tripped and hurt my knee

The grin it got much broader
Then he laughed at me out loud
I slipped up on my backside
By now there was a crowd

And then he came right over
On his face there was a frown
And said"You should be paid for that"
"Be like me,become a clown".
