She dropped her skirts with gay abandon –
Stepped out of them with glee:
She only had one star to go –
Oh, disappointed me!
AN EXHIBITOR’S LAMENT
‘Twas on the morning of the Show,
I rose before first light –
The Angoras were all spick and span
When I went to bed last night.
I sorted out my grooming kit
After they’d been fed –
But when I looked at them, I wished
I’d stayed in bed instead!
Antonia was white last night
Pure as the driven snow –
this morning she is covered
in hay from head to toe!
And the quiet well behave Celeste
Has pieces of things all round her chest.
Snowball must have been in a tussle –
He seems to have done something to a muscle.
Mischievous Bella has mix in her whiskers –
I wonder whether or not to risk her?
And Dapple (the Chin) – I almost forgot him –
Has something unsavoury stuck to his bottom!
Its just as well I’ve left plenty of time
Why, only on show days???
There’s no reason or rhyme.
