An omelette of nonsense!

Alphabet coop

The farmer making A
Was stung by a B
He couldn't C
Flying over the River D,
But E said the F word,
G he dropped his Hs,
I swear, and a Spanish
J perching nearby asked
K? Well all L broke loose,
M was not the word,
An old speckled N enquired
O what can the matter be?
Mind your Ps and Qs, the
Farmer replied, R you not
Busy laying eggs? S said
The hen who had a lisp,
Time then for T the farmer
Chortled, U are a good egg,
No a V good egg, old bird,
W and I would have two good layers!
X marks the spot where
I'll build you a new coop,
Y I can't wait to eat your eggs,
And after my meal I'll look forward
To a good night's sleep on my

First time the alphabet was able to make me smile



This is a clever omelet of delightful nonsense. It reminds me a bit of Spike Milligan.
Thanks, Nick
