Floody marvellous 

Cumbria (North England) has been suffering with floods,

And it’s not just broken dishwasher suds, 

16inches of rain in a mere 24hours,

That much water isn’t even good for the flowers,

Many are suffering with flooded homes,

A sorrow that can’t be helped by poems,

But one 70yr old fella knew just what to do,

After all there is no weather honcho they can sue,

He stripped to his swimming trunks in front of the neighbours,

And took a swim in his kitchen winning everyone’s favours,

He laughed and joked so the flood wouldn’t win,

In water as dirty as the inside of a bin,

He brought the ‘Dunkirk spirit’ to every onlooker,

And breast stroke seemed apt to celebrate the death of his cooker.
