22nd April, 2016 Friday fun with Annabel Amos on her BBC Radio Northampton Drivetime show... I even included the word, 'nipple'! Click the player below to catch it again... GK’s Peek at Drivetime's Week – 22/04/16 A busy week, lots on the boil From Cobblers’ joy, to birthdays royal A week to celebrate. Wooo Hooo! And drown out news of The EU! Of which that’s all I’ll say this time So’s not to taint this happy rhyme For regal I intend to stay Respecting our dear queen’s birthday But more of that in verse to come Let us first beat the Drivetime drum The Drivetime rhythm, Drivetime blues The throbbing pulse of Northants news Like the throbbing pulse of newborn mites As homebirth numbers hit new heights .. And thinking babes - their favourite tipple Have you ever heard of jogger’s nipple? P’rhaps not a thing, though, one should pick To say out loud to Speedo Mick For as the temp turns cold and trembly He’ll feel it on his way to Wembley Yes, frost is back, all chilled and slippy Which neatly rhymes with this word… “Grippy” A word Annabel uses when she’s tense And wants to win, which does make sense ‘Cos it’s not ‘bout tension in exams But when one plays bananagrams I wonder if it, though, too prevails At news of cancelled carboot sales…? Still, moving on… What’s had us talking? Well… Wellingborough gangs, and cyberstalking The cost of parking now in Kettering They’ve each drawn words of four cap lettering… Not to mention Desborough’s tax That council’s stopped folk in their tracks Whilst woods in Herts now charge to see The bluebells that grow naturally Which takes us to sad news… not good For RIP Victoria Wood And too, we also say goodbye To Prince, that Purple Rainy guy Ah, purple… yes, a royal hue We’ve now returned to Thursday’s ‘Do’ When not just Windsor cheered, elated No! Our country celebrated For brass bands played, and guns saluted Beacons burned, and hooters hooted Tea was poured for quite a bake-up And Joan Collins put on extra makeup Yes, ‘twas a day when our whole nation Pooled its joy in celebration And not a word was said, wooo hooo! To raise that topic… The EU!
