Gran's Cuckoo Clock - Heading .jpg


By Josie Whitehead

Gran's Cuckoo Clock

Grandma’s cuckoo’s flown away,
     Her clock is silent now,
But I’ll soon mend her cuckoo clock.
     Instead we’ll have a cow.

Let’s have no more 'cuckoo cuckoo.'
    Let’s have a gentle 'moo'.
The only problem that we’ll have
      Is cleaning up its poo.

The cuckoo was a bird quite clean
     And left no mess at all,
But cow pats are another thing
      As I quite well recall.

On second thoughts we’ll leave the cow
      In pastures fresh and green.
Let’s get the cuckoo to come home
      And keep Gran’s parlour clean.
