    I'm Off Me Tree

    'I'm off me tree!' he claps with glee
    and from his branch does launch
    springs like a Jackinthebox without the box
    quite high into the sky
    but comes down hard like a big lump of lard
    begins to sway as his legs give way
    so lands halfarse on his arse
    'Well this is a crime - I used to do it all the time!'
    he picks himself up and wipes his butt
    and limps like a blimp
    to the nearest frog-filled log
    rubs his tum, itches his bum
    and kneels uncomfortably upon one knee
    he catches a toad in Mixolydian mode
    gobbles it quick as a stick
    'Bedtime now,' numpty says with a frown
    closes his eyes

    and dies

    who am I but a stitch in time
    what if I were to bare my soul
    would you see me origami
