Nell and Berti
"Darling, where have you been, Iv'e missed you so!"
"Oh darling, I'm tewibbly sowwy, I forgot to tell you
Where I went! I hijacked a lowwy; just told him to go
Which he did. Awft to the bushes and went to the loo.!"
"Oh darling, that must have been so tewibbly awful
For you. Did the dwiver run away or did he stay?"
"The dwiver stayed honeybun, though he did stall
The engine twice before we dwove away all a fway."
"And where did you tell the dwiver to dwive to my
Dearest darling Nell.? Oh what scandalous pitch
And how naughty you are; what derring do and joy!"
"Yes darling, beside himself he called me a witch!"
"Oh praise indeed darling for a witch is what you are!
But do tell me darling Nell, did you twavel vewy far?"
" Indeed darling. We dwove awound the woundabout;
We heard lots of people sound their horns and shout!
So being qwite afwaid, we went and joined the A1
Which as you know darling is a vewy stwaight woad.
The dwiver didn't mind at all at my holding a gun
To his head! He consigned himself and just followed
My orders as what to do next. I felt like an icecweem;
Stwabewwy and cweem icecweem. It was yummy.!"
"Oh dear Nell, what a gas! What a fabulous scweam!"
"Yes darling. I'm so chasse! so cool! and so uppity
Am I not?" " Oh indeed you are my darling Nell. Tell
Me, where is the dwiver whom you so tewwified
Out of his wits?" "Well, I have to say he did rebel
Somewhat so I had to let him go. He was petwified!"
But I am such a wonderful girl as you know so well
My dearest darling Berti; please don't get too shirty
Because I let him off the hook." "Oh what a crook
You are dear Nell. Welcome home. Was that the bell?"
Now please read out loud with a posh English accent; it will make a difference and you may even laugh at yourself reading so. Edward
