Practice

I

Building blocks of different shape and colour

Teach all sorts of useful skill

And its lots of fun when they fall over

II

They might call you a marvel of language

but you’ve got to engage with the locals

if you want to order your lunch

III

Your eye is the best judge

but don’t be disheartened

if that pear looks like a plum

add a peach to the fruitbowl instead

IV

Picking a subject

taking a shot

if you’re not happy with your shot

there’s always the delete button

or perhaps you could edit it at home ?

V

Yellow tennis ball

perfect thing for practicing

reflex actions

catching out in the field

(The red cork ball – saved for match day)

Building Blocks, at the Cabin, BASIC Clicks. (p) BFK 2016

 

It begins simply enough,

a simple bucket of bricks

stacked up from top to bottom

till at last – they topple

oh what fun!

 

The next thing you know

you’re building a wall

with stuff from the sea

and occasionally it falls

oh what fun

Construct

Two kids in a classroom

Playing with their toys

Just a normal day

for the girls and boys

One quietly builds a house

with coloured blocks

whilst the other plays with his van

with silver wheels and shocks

Walls they go up quickly

two red, two blue of course

with roof of yellow on top

to withstand the strongest force

But that doesn’t count

for his truck riding friend

who makes a bawl, making walls fall

by riding the truck into buildings end

Demolition clears up their mess

Constructor starts to mend

with a little extra help

from their contrite friend
