No 245 November 17
Last night I saw my great granddaughter,
She put pen and paper in my hand,
She said can we write my Christmas list,
This joy I had not planned.
She said ďIíd like a tiaraĒ,
And of course a princess dress Iíll need,
I also need a computer,
If at school I must succeed.
Iíd also like you to get me,
A guitar, Iíd love to play,
I said who do you think will pay for these,
I donít work and get no pay.
She said Iíve got a fiver,
Iíll give it to you,
Because I havenít finished yet,
Thereís still another few.
Her granddad said ďI got an apple and an orangeĒ
I donít think that sunk in,
I just looked at her mother,
And said where do we begin.
