Ice Cream Gran 2 - Going Turbo

My old Gran, met an ice cream man Who welcomed her into the clan Of superhero ice cream men Who fend off villains now and then He gave her top crime fighting tips And lots of special chocolate chips They’ll pump your muscles, fix your hips If two or three should pass your lips We’ve also got a gadget man Looking at your ice cream van He’ll supercharge the things he can And then we’ll call you Turbo Gran * One week later, first time out Turbo went out on the scout When two muggers robbed a man Turbo Gran pulled up the van She grabbed some chocolate chips to eat These would make her hard to beat She hurled some ice cream down the street And underneath the mugger’s feet Their every step did slip and slide They reached a barn and hid inside The barn was stacked up high with logs But P.C. Hoggs had brought the dogs ‘Hey, Turbo Gran, you gotta laugh, those muggers left an ice cream path.’ The dogs sniffed where ice cream was slicked And pretty soon those thieves were licked So now they call her Turbo Gran It’s written on her ice cream van With ‘Speedy’ written on each door Just listen to it’s engine roar So watch her go, my crazy gran My grandma with a souped up van To call her ‘Turbo’, please feel free But she’s still ‘Ice Cream Gran’ to me

LOL! Very good Terry. I'm wondering if there's a role for Mr Softy or Mr Whippy in later poems? Cheers - Gary

Anything’s possible, Gary. I’m just tidying up number 5, but it’s a long one so I’m looking to see if there’s a logical split where I could post part one and part two. I’m tempted to say there isn’t so it may go on as is. Glad you enjoyed. Terry

Thanks, Jennifer. Don’t know how much personality to give her… it’s kinda nice that anyone could imagine that she’s their own grandma. Have to see what my dusty place comes up with. Terry

Glad you’re enjoying this mini-series, Angela. The first write, ages ago, kinda drove into a brick wall. Looked at it again and suddenly it’s a trilogy… hmm is there such thing as a quadrology? ;-) Terry

Glad you enjoyed this sequel, Tom. Whether she’ll ever be able to fly, I don’t know….. yet! Terry
