A Week In The Park

MONDAY

Guess what I saw in the park today?  A young woman teaching her dog to ‘stay’;

Geese flying low from the pond to the lake; a coot have a go at a mallard drake;

A flowerbed looking abandoned and stark; that’s what I saw today in the park.

TUESDAY

Guess what I saw in the park today?  Some people in costume rehearsing a play;

Dogs chase a squirrel right up a tree; a little girl crying cos she scraped her knee;

A personal trainer making his mark; that’s what I saw today in the park.

WEDNESDAY

Guess what I saw in the park today?  A heron, a nuthatch, a grebe and a jay;

Two fat rabbits and an ugly rat; a tall posh lady in a ludicrous hat;

A plastic giraffe and a broken toy ark; that’s what I saw today in the park.

THURSDAY

Guess what I saw in the park today?  Two men embracing (they must have been gay);

An old woman feeding the birds with bread; a couple discussing a book they’d just read;

Some naughty schoolboys having a lark; that’s what I saw today in the park.

FRIDAY

Guess what I saw in the park today?  Two police horses, a black and a grey;

A whole group of workmen having their lunch; several green parrots all land in a bunch;

Six dogs having a communal bark; that’s what I saw today in the park.
