Weird
 

I popped into Weird when out walking today

A strange sort of place that's not too far away

You'll find it in shadows look hard it's quite dim

A beckoning finger will welcome you in

 

There's a warp-curtain wall where a threshold

Appears, you may pass through a tea shop before

You reach Weird. But it's there nonetheless your

Journey's worthwhile, you'll be met by a yodelling

Foot-tapping child

 

You'll go through reception and into review where

They may take some upside down pictures of you

Please don't comb your hair or adjust your aplomb

There's no need for that the lens cap’s still on

 

There's so much to see and so much to do, there’s

A trip round a plant that makes conjugal glue

You'll be taken to see all the strange things and

More, like a sunset at three and another at four

 

If that's not enough well pray come take a look

A doll's head in a handbag is driving a bus, and

While we've been chatting there's music on hand

From the strings of a corset once owned by Chopin
