Michael Edwards




They come in their droves they arrive every day

by dinghy, by barge and  canoe

‘So how can we stop them?’ I hear you say

well believe me it’s easy to do.


The answer’s quite simple - I’ll give you no flannel:

pull out the plug and drain dry the Channel.

    problem solved Michael;

    good one.

  • Fay Slimm.

    Cant stop the giggle exploding when thoughts of what a mighty big plug that would need Mike - grrrrrreat to see you back with a wonderful water-colour plus your unique and welcome wit.

  • Doggerel Dave

    Got a good laugh out of your last two lines Michael. Wicked image.

    'Tis a serious subject, though (and please don't look to Australia for models/answers).

  • Goldfinch60

    Fun words about a very serious subject Michael.
    Good to see you back.

    Brilliant artwork.
