Drifting Off Into My World
I'm daydreaming again
Today I am George
Feeling the salt laden spray
Stinging my face
As I pull on the oars
In rhythm with the waves

Have been kidnapped!
By the evil witch
Masquerading as,

And are being held prisoners,
In the deep dark caves,
Below Kirrin Island.
So, it's Timmy, my big brown,
Shaggy dog and I,
To the rescue!
We will be heroes,
Tim and I!
'JANET DEARN!
Where have you gone now?
And what is, 2 x 2 + 8 - 5?'
'Sorry Miss Jones, I was just…..

I am on to her dastardly plan!
'Correct, but do try and stay,
With us, at least,
Until the bell'
'Yes Miss' I shouted, knowing
I would have the infamous but,
On my school report, again;

--- Her English is exceptional
--- Her Maths is coming on
--- Her needlework's a disaster
--- In Art she tries very hard

BUT - if only she would concentrate
She could achieve much more
BUT - she is so very easily distracted
By the stories in her head!

Now thirty years and nine have passed,
And I am trying to write,
A poem, for a treasured anthology
BUT - I am daydreaming again
Today I am Enid Blyton,
And I'm ……….
