The Mail Plane - a short nonsense poem
The Mail Plane
Loading up the mail plane
Tightly shut the door
Look out, here comes Colin
'Is there room for just one more?'
'One more what?', asks Pilot Pete
Knowing very well
That Colin wants to hitch a ride
To see his cousin Kel
'Oh hurry up Col 'n' climb aboard
I haven't got all day
I'm on a schedule - can't be late
I must be on me way'
'G'day Pete', a voice calls out
It's Colin's Aunty Dawn
'Can I hitch a ride to Gil?' ...
'Me grandson's just been born'
'Oh ... alright Dawn,
but hurry up. I'm running late ya know'
'I won't take long, just fetch me dog
He's gonna compete in the Show'
'All aboard, I'm closing the door,
I've gotta get on me way'
'Hold on Pete', calls Kath the nurse
'Emergency! Can't delay!'
'I'm needed back at the clinic now
So let's get this plane in the air
Don't know why it takes you so long
To get from here to there!'
