Banbury Square

Banbury Square

A Chapter by Dave Brown



The Alien's came to Banbury Square

To see a c**k-horse of white

Callously commandeering recreational vehicles

Because they had planned to stay overnight


But it was in the midst of holiday season

And they hadn’t arranged a reservation

Requiring their otherworld construction division

To augment this unwanted complication


Deciding to re-conjomiliticate Banbury square

They had hired a lady with bells on her toes

And after discoplacing a block of high-rise apartments

Her payment was a lovely red rose


The aliens then partied for a week

Taking drunken council from the c**k-horse each day

Finally leaving on the thirteenth, a Friday

Full of beer, with many dragons to slay

While I'm enchanted as always by your penchant for finding the most bizarre rabbit holes to shizzle down, a million miles from what any other writer is writing (gotta love sparkling originality) . . . this poem demonstrates that a sightless grunting mole sometimes has no freakin' idea what he's digging around & into, way down deep in the terra incognita burrows of an "old growth" forest *heh! heh! heh!* Fondly, Margie

Although nursery rhyme based, could be all the covidiots here clogging up beachfronts and country lanes, desperate to get away during lockdown.
Don't think they'll be so eager now the fine has been put up to ten grand though...Hopefully.
Impressed you know all the rhymes to begin with before remixing them, I had to google the original after you leaving the tune in my ear 😀

"Ride a c**k-horse to Banbury Cross,
To see a fine lady upon a white horse;
Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes,
And she shall have music wherever she goes
