Those School Summer Holidays

That seemed to stretch on and on

Then all too suddenly

Were almost passed and gone.

 

Bert joked it was Dave and Jen,

Though they both called him a liar,

For having a crafty smoke 

And setting Crofties Barn on fire.

 

The roof sheets exploded 

With a loud, sharp bang

Leaving corrugated sheets,

To forlornly swing and hang.
 

And the bottomless village pond,

Said to entice you in to die,

Was soon exposed as a myth

As the firemen pumped it dry.

 

All the kids of the village

Keeping carefully out of the way

Stood around and watched

The events of that eventful day

 

But special that year 

When Bert was called a liar

For suggesting Dave and Jen

Set Crofties barn on fire

 

In School Summer Holidays

That seemed to stretch on and on

Then all too suddenly

Were almost passed and gone.
