what children say

It's very true you never know
When they will make a fool of you
Imagine the scene was in the local church
The priest was enthuising about
It being Harvest Festival time 

He spots young Mali walking down the aisle
Dressed in a  lovely shiny blue dress
Carrying a trug of fruit and veg for the festival
Smiling and looking like an angel

Here comes Mali looking gorgeous
Bends to take the trug off her 
whispers  quietly, Mali you look really beautiful
The dress is so perfect for you,
When clearly into the hidden mic
A sweet little voice said
“My mother says it’s a bugger to iron”

The congregation were convulsed with laughter
except for one red faced woman
who wished the floor would open up
