I’ve written a post on the Shoe Box my sister gave me but I’m not ready to publish it yet.
However, I have mentioned that Mum had kept a book of poetry I’d written, so I have been transferring them to my computer files.
I remember this one, and thought it might make you smile (I was about 14)
Hello, I’m a Martian
The little man said
With tiny green body
And overgrown head.
‘Don’t be afraid,
I won’t hurt you,
But please kindly Earthling,
Can I use your loo?’
And yes, I’m afraid some are worse than this!
