THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Bat Patrol” by Georgia Heard: quickly, quietly, bat, sending, song, ripples, pond, moths, streetlight, invisible, night, chasing
Smuggling, snuggling, or struggling?
Chased by Customs for bringing in some stuff
Quietly snuggling in the night as you sing
Ripples in the pond, not paying the tariff
Moths in streetlight, quickly a song sending
Not being able to afford and we’re scruff
Can we tell the difference between all three?
In a grand prix such is life as we see*
