Decapitation For Fun

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 When I was young and fairly bored,
I’d go out on my bike,
And cycle down the country lanes
To anywhere I’d like.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 And as I’d ride on down the hills,
My left leg dangling freely,
I’d kick the dandelion heads
While trying to do a wheelie.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 It was a game requiring skill,
And timing was essential.
The flick had to be sharp and crisp,
For to be providential.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 The foot had got to strike the head,
Right where it met the stem.
Higher up or lower down
Just didn’t work on them.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 And as I spread those yellow heads,
Throughout this fertile nation,
I revelled in my role of
Benefiting pollination.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 As hobbies went, I always found it
Very edifyin’.
It wasn’t really football though,
‘Twas more footdandelion.
