‘Victory’ is the title of the Photo Challenge this week and here is my entry!
Colin Crab’s mum was oft in despair
The source of this feeling…..her son!
For Colin loved to play in the mud
Sense of cleanliness? No he had none!
He hid himself deep in dark muddy places
And played hide and seek every day
He liked to feel dirty….some people do!
There was nothing his mum could say
She begged and she pleaded and tried to persuade….
A bath could be nice once a week!
But Colin stood firm in his mess and his filth
He loved his mudpie chic!
Coralie Crab, for that was her name
Thought long and hard for a way
It was then she decided that cunning and stealth
Would help find Colin’s once sweet bouquet!
She told him about a young crab called Kat
Who could often be found near these houses
She played in the swimming pools most of the day
And wore short skirts and pretty pink blouses!
So Colin decided to humour his mum
And went to the villa for a look
He saw her and then he said to himself
“I must have her by hook or by crook!”
And this is where his mum had won
With love-what a mystery!
It made Colin change his mind about dirt
And gave Coralie the ‘victory’!!
Colin the Crab!
Found love by the pool
Kept himself clean
No longer the fool!
See Ya xx
