Last night as I was coming out of the pub
I saw a funny thing – don’t laugh –
I saw a snake devouring the whole world
And the snake wore my old school scarf.
This morning roadworks buggered up my journey
I missed the early train
I opened the paper for the football news
And I saw the snake again.
This is beginning to worry me just a bit
Perhaps I should see a doctor
I told my wife all about the snake and the scarf
And I think I shocked her.
“For you to see a snake coming out of the pub – ”
“No, I was coming out of the pub, not the snake – ”
“ – Is hardly a surprise, but for it to wear such a scarf –
There must be some mistake.”
