Name change

After searching for the original title "Poetry from a small Island" it would apear there are lots of sites with that name. So i've changed it. I've also added a comment bar at the bottom of each post.

Th'owd bow back,
Ligging in’t corner ut room
In’thundred yers
Its sen so many bums
Arms are naer on worn owt
Its shins av bin kicked abowt
A bit a elbo grees
An a spit an polish
It’ll lookas gud as nuw

Well its bin rubbed down
An ad a lik
O’ that nuw vanish stuff
Wot yer can get
I’t’ll sev on yon polish
It luks reet gud
Standin in yon conservatwaa
Lukin spankin nuw

Wen we get people cumin’ in
Sum wanna sit on er
But lukin ut bums is ower
Fer this owd chare
Yons worth a bit o brass
Is yon chare
Wen we get ower a undred
We don't wan’tr luk at bums
Well chare’s ar’t same

A little tale of the chair..I bought this chair more than 30 years ago along with an oak corner cupboard for the princely sum of five pounds, on removing the seat pad I found it was stuffed with two extremely large pinafores and half a pair of extremely large pink bloomers.
