Hi Folks, I Hope you like my little poem!
I like bacon when it sizzles,
Coal dust floating on a spade,
Two eggs a-popping,
Boiler juice a-dropping,
Knocks all breakfasts in the shade.

I like hot onion on a steam pipe,
Kerb stone bread with mighty crust,
Never mind the cinders,
Sleeping on yer fingers,
Just let the grease run down yer mush.

I like bacon when it sizzles,
And coal dust floating in the slops,
But now I’m getting thinner,
Riding on me Zimmer,
And me” big end “keeps staring at me socks!
