I’m a wee Snail “I’m a wee snail”, Joseph said to the rail “Not very good dining”, He pled with a wail. Two little molluscs I got in a sale One a small girl And one of them male. Joseph was his name And she was called Gail He was all dark And she was quite pale. One fine day We went for a sail I drank champagne And they drank pale ale. We all drank too much And threw up in a pail. The boat went awry Ending up on the shale. A coastguard came at once to our hail But then got cross and put us in jail. We sat there all day Feeling ever so frail. Our day, like this poem One big epic fail.
A very silly poem, but I told Peter I would post it, so….

Joseph is very cute! It’s always nice to read something that makes us smile. Peter had the right idea.
I love it, and am so glad that you posted it. More please!
There’s a much longer one about a mouse called Rupert……
Hmm. Wondering what rhymes with Rupert.
I like your poem … who thought one can get the coastguards and snails in one story?
Just as well they were not in my garden, they would have been thrown over the fence into next door. 🙂
Nicely done, with the feel of a limerick too.
Best wishes, Pete.
My Mum was merciless with slugs and snails. They met a sad end:(
Salt works on them. 🙂
