Have a go, step right up – try your hand at getting the Hoop

On the target

Of course , land it on the right target – you’ll get a

Prize, It’s all down to where your hoop

Lands – and that’s down to your

In their finest

Salford, 9th January 2019

On a Sunday morning,

In the bright sunshine

You’ll see them all

In their finest

Taking a walk

With husband or wife

Along with the children,

Escaping the strife

No work for the blacksmith

The shops are all closed

They’ve all been to church

So a walk is proposed

And while making their way

To the local town fair

Some humbugs and sweets

The family will share

As mum and dad rest

In their boaters and hats

The children play games

With the balls and their bats

Magic Roundabout

Carousel

An acrostic on the Carousel, by Inky.

Crazy, the way this

amusement ride of colour turns

round and around to the sound

of the pipes in its middle

under the musics charms the

stallions and fillies move up and down

expect laughter and cheers from the

little ones, who’ve been waiting all summer to ride it

Corkscrew

A tale of a fairground ride

Starting slowly
you slowly make your ascent
building in speed
till you start to drop
speeding up as you turn
round and round you go
till the spiral ends
and the corkscrew stops
and your stomach drops
