  • A Goose On The Loose (A Poem For Children)


    Lucy the goose was on the loose
    Having just escaped from the farm
    She only wanted a change
    Did not intend any harm

    Alas, harm is what Lucy did
    To anyone she happened to meet
    Well, it is a bit of a shock
    To see a goose wander up the high street

    Mrs Brown, at the sight of Lucy
    I think maybe suffered the most
    Too busy staring at Lucy
    And walked into a lamppost

    Mr Smith fared little better
    As he came out of a store
    Tripped and fell over Lucy
    His shopping all over the floor

    Then passing by in their car
    Came Mr and Mrs Bond
    Spied Lucy and took their eye off the road
    And drove straight into a pond

    Now, Mr Carmichael was jogging
    And, suddenly burst into a sprint
    Saw Lucy and ran into Miss Shaw
    Who almost choked on a mint

    Of all this, Lucy was unaware
    As she came up on old Grandpa Black
    She gave out a very loud “HONK”
    And almost gave him a heart attack

    Then Lucy turned to walk back down the street
    What she saw filled her with surprise
    People lying around, a car in a pond
    And a woman with two massive black eyes

    “What strange people” Lucy thought
    “I am out of my comfort zone,
    These people are just too weird for me,
    Yes, I think it’s time I went home

    Lucy the goose was on the loose
    She never really meant any harm
    But, everyone back in the high street
    Are relieved that she’s back on the farm
