CONKERS

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Conkers, we call them,
The fruits of the
Common horse-chestnut tree,
Growing in spiked green shells
Till they ripen and fall free

They whiz through the air
And land with a sharp crack
Enough to smash the small shell
But the embedded nut is intact

Usually, eager little boys
Who are dying to play a game
Would climb the tall trees
To provoke and inflame

Collecting them in handfuls
And carrying home in sacks
To dry them and to choose
Which one will attack

For they are knotted on string
And fight in a battle
A 19th century game of power
Their opponent to rattle

For he is the champion
The winner, the mighty,
Who hits all the others
For they are frail and flighty
