Robbie Keane [aged 5]

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Miss Barker briskly handed out
The markers and some card.
“We’re going to make some signs about
The litter in the yard.”

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The five year olds looked overawed,
At that great task ahead,
Though Robbie Keane looked tired and bored
And picked his nose instead.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 The concentration was impassioned
As children started drawing,
And marvellous works of art were fashioned,
Though one child found it boring.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 “Why aren’t you drawing, Robbie?” came
The shrill voice of Miss Barker.
“Please miss, I’m really not to blame –
I’ve gone and lost my marker.”
