Poem: Mrs McBoo and Mrs McShoe
In a Glasgow flat
In a very nice street,
Lived Mrs McBoo and Mrs McShoe.
They were very tidy,
And every Friday,
They scrubbed and cleaned
Until the whole place gleamed.
They cooked and baked
Until their poor arms ached.
Then sat back and sighed
With a cup of tea,
And said to each other –
“a good job done,
Now let’s have some fun.”
So they played some songs
And it wasn’t long –
Before they were dancing and singing,
The whole place ringing,
With shouts of delight
And if you were passing at night
You might get a fright,
To hear such a noise,
From two ladies in a flat!
Now fancy that!
After an hour
They ran out of power,
They had had enough,
They had run out of puff.
So time to relax
And rest their backs,
Eat their dinner
Always a winner –
FISH AND CHIPS!
