Down at the allotment there’s a funny bunch o’ characters…..
Take the inhabitants of Snail Street….
There they all were, minding their own business, when along I came looking for things to burn!!
I certainly don’t want snails for lunch so I’m hoping they’ll take the hint and vacate!
Simeon Snail is the first to react….
“Arghhh, quick…save yourselves, run!” he shouted trying not to get too out of breath!
“Abandon Snail Street….Danger, danger!” he continued!
And off he went!
Moments later his conscience got the better of him and he returned to awaken his better half, Susanna…
“Susanna, Susanna, wake UP!” shrieked Simeon getting a little agitated!
Simeon’s impatience and fear got the better of him and…….
….off he went!
He went a little faster than he meant too and hurtled to the grass…
Slightly dazed he gingerly extended his eye stalks and the other stalky things which he had never given a name to!
Meanwhile back on Snail Street, chaos had broken out!
Simeon could only look and hope it would all be ok!
All I can add to this short and slightly odd tale is that no snails were harmed in the ensuing fire!
Susanna forgave Simeon for saving his own skin!
See Ya xx
