The Six Nations

Italy, Ireland
Wales, Scotland and France
Not forgetting the English
Who stand a fair chance
Of winning the six nations
By ruck and by maul
For victory is insight
With elliptical ball
And muddied persuasion
To kick and to run
Whilst the rest of us watch
Drink beer and have fun!

Pancake Legend

Well flippity flip and there it goes
So high up into the sky
A pancake that with all intent
Just simply wants to fly
Out of the pan with airborne means
It heads to higher heights
And why – good question!  Why indeed
Why toss with such great might?

Well it is told in myth of old
In Ireland to be true
That eldest girls did toss the cake
For marriage to ensue
So long as when she flipped it up
That pancakes landed flat
Back in the pan so perfectly
For wedlock tit for tat

So flippity flip and there is goes
So high into the sky
A pancake that with all intent
Just simply wants to fly
Out of the pan so steadfastly
Enticing ring and gown
For maids to catch men with a toss
Of pancakes round the town

English: A heap of pancakes in Sweden. My moth...
