The Committee

Not quite sure where to put this. Written 20years plus ago. Some may get the drift–


It is proposed

Said Mr Jones

The Chairman to be sure,

I second that

Said Mrs Smith

A chorus of Here! Here!

The cry came from the table top

“What was it we proposed?”

“I do suppose”

Said Mr Jones

“The rates will cover all”.

An ear horn

A snore or two

Another cup of tea

“Take a biscuit”

Mrs Green

“Don’t mind if I do

Oh there’re the best

The chocolate kind.

I’ll take just one or two”.

“I’m getting sore,

These leather chairs,

Let’s have a Parker knoll”

“It is proposed

The Chairman said

A nod from all and all.
