Childs Play




He slipped in from the ninth dimension
Taking their world by the storm
As Merlin the amazing Magician
Impossible tricks are my norm

He assembled a crowd of some thousands
All stood around in pouring rain
Awaiting the scheduled approach
Of the London to Edinburgh train

They were promised a feat of impossibility
Which they certainly thought they got
One minute the train was approaching
The next minute it certainly was not

He routed it through a handy temporal anomaly
And for the travellers it didn't last
But for the assembled watchers
A whole five minutes had passed

And they stood there in silent amazement
With many a wide open mouth
Instead of proceeding to Edinburgh
That train was now pointing south

Then he shamelessly pandered to his audience
Made sure they got moneys worth
By making that train go again
And reappear heading due north

He floated there before his amazed audience
With head suitably bowed
Then with a flash and a bang
Disappeared in a nearby cloud

He'd been bored with dimensional primitives
And in his mind he could see
Back in his own dimension
They were serving afternoon tea

So he slipped back surreptitiously quietly
Landing there on his sit upon
And neither Mummyor Nursey
Ever knew that he'd been gone
