Saxon Crow

RIP Boffington Town

What a sad day for Boffington Town
The Council decreed to close the place down
The police station, the fire service are both laid to rest
While shops, pubs and restaurants are labelled a mess
The houses still standing are quickly pulled down
While residents and neighbours are all kicked out
Griddly Smethelton has had a nose job done 
And it looks quite beautiful sewn to his wrinkly old bum
While Ipsy Mcskiggins the murderess of cats

Is sent to an asylum with all hair still intact

Mrs Duckers and Mr Von Sneppick
Both got married to give them credit
While PC Porpoodle was arrested for theft
Apparently he stole a troll of his last breath
And the Colerutter fire crew have now been extinguished 
All because their antics caused a lot more damage
So the lights go out in Boffington Town
All the stories and laughter no longer to be found
And the last thing we see is its people on the run
Because the timer on the bomb
Has almost reached 1

....... The End........

    A fine write SC.

    OOOOOOh Noooooooo..... You can't do that, Sax. Shows complete lack of compassion for B Town's residents...Where is your humanity?
    Can I suggest you petition Prince Charles to build a second town....that's the best I can do at this distance... I feel so powerless...
    A skilled chronicler of the end....

      All bad things come to an end Dave. At least we were able to share some tiny moments

      A petion is needed, sign here for the rebuilding of Boff Town.
      An erection of scaffolding is urgently required.

      As sorry as I am to hear it's the end, I bow to a magnificent poet for such a wonderful epic, it's been such a thrill to read the comings and goings of such a magnificent town. I say more more more.

      from a single abode doth vast cities grow ..

      dunno why that phrase came to me .. maybe its just a phrase I'm going through ...

      I guess all good comes to an end ... in the end ...

      a great tale told terribly well again sir ....

      ... the end 🙂

      Many towns resurrect from the ashes, I am sure B Town will be back.


    • L. B. Mek

      that jovial rhymed tone, throughout
      and abruptly - morose, yet somehow hilarious
      last line, made me want to read this again..
      strangely, I found this to be a fun read
      thanks for sharing dear poet
      (sorry if I'm being insensitive for writing this)

      Hopefully tales of Boffington will continue to be heard along with its nefarious characters.
      Damn good reading.

    • Accidental Poet

      If it is the end for Boffington Town, maybe a new town will take it's place with new characters. A great series of writes Sax. Keep that quill wet. 😉

    • Neil Higgins

      Damn those town planners.They can't leave anything alone 🤔
      Enjoyed the antics of one and all
