Framley wants a goose – By Hilary Insertcoin

Furious Goose

A great companion for any young lad.

Framley such a nice young boy,
Received a multitude of toys,
Upon his birthday – why so sad?
What troubles this upstanding lad?

When asked just what the problem was,
He told them that it was because,
A waterfowl was more required,
A feathered friend was most desired

“I told you mum
And you too dad,
I just love geese,
It’s not a fad!”

“The other gifts are nice and all,
I love the prostitute and ball,
But I implore I am so fond,
The thought of geese upon our pond”

His loving parents racked with guilt,
Had also purchased him a quilt,
But what was used to stuff this gift?
Their answer back was not too swift
