Rainbow alphabet doggerel (C,D)

C is for Cucumber

The crazy cook would prepare
His favourite dish with great care-
Curried crab with cold custard,
Crumble cake with Colman's Mustard,
Chocolate and cheese with cod
And sliced cucumber (which seems odd)
All clumped together with clammy rice,
The taste of which he claims is nice.


D is for Do

The little riddle of example

If I do
What you do
And he does
The same

Then they do
What we do
Who first is
To blame?

That last lap had me jumping up and down screaming. My heart rate went into the red. Utterly fantastic.

The Times:

“In Italy, for a race like this we say, ‘mamma mia!’,” Rossi said. “I have dreamed that overtake for one week. I knew I had to fight and it was a great battle to the end.” Lorenzo, eight years Rossi’s junior at 22, said: “I wasn’t expecting him to take me at that point. He was more courageous and deserved the win.”
