I’ll go out and buy one.



A handbook for engineering,

A toy racing car,

A second hand oil heater.

I’ll go out and buy one he said.


We don’t need an engineers thesaurus,

A scalextric set,

Extra heating,

She advised…..


I’ll get some glue,

And some wood

And some brackets

He said.


We don’t need shelves,

We’ve got cupboards

And drawers

She replied.


I’ll get some yeast

And flour (strong white)

And a mixing bowl

He told her.


But you burn toast

Add salt to cakes

And set fire to the grill

Three times.


I’ll buy a shed, she said

For you, she said

Then you’ll be happy

She said.
