Michael Edwards




An aspiring young jockey called Morse

was longing to ride round the course

‘How can it be done?’

he asked his bright son.

‘On a long-tailed, long legged, well bred, black Arabian horse, of course!’




There was an old man called Rose

who wore a large peg on his nose.

Whenever asked ‘Why?’

He would always reply:

‘It’s convenient for hanging out clothes’.





There was a young man from Eccles

who was covered all over in freckles.

Said the King to the Queen

‘Tis a thing seldom seen,

except in the streets around Eccles’.

        What a coincidence - by the way have you ever heard of the Goon Show? Not sure if it was popular in the States - if not just google \'Goon Show, Eccles\'
