ROYAL BABY TV COVERAGE
On 22 July, 2013, Prince George of Cambridge was born, the first son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. 24/7 rolling news programmes went into overdrive, covering every detail and sometimes filling in with commentary on absolutely nothing – as they do. This is a little memory of the day as I watched TV.
Kay Burley* was top girly,
Simon McCoy**, top boy,
All the blah and all the blether,
The mixed fortunes of the weather,
Standing outside the Lindo Wing***,
Waiting for news, anything,
The stalwarts stood their ground and guessed,
Some viewers annoyed, many impressed,
And after all the long, long wait,
There they were, Wills and Kate,
Ending all the guesswork-hooey,
Presenting Prince George Alexander Louis.......

The Chuckle Files
Like my previous volume, Juggling Jelly, some of the poems in this book are funny, some are silly, some are funny and silly....... This is another “pick ‘n’ mix” selection to amuse in a world that cannot have enough smiles. Whilst the collection is for kids of all ages, it has been compiled with audiences of school children in mind - to involve and entertain creative young minds. Having fun with words and writing poetry - now that's a useful combination.
