The Coquette


'volatile. demure. offend.'


This young chap's in a fix!
What a volatile mix!
Yes, he is a victim, for sure!
She's reeling him in
With suggestions of sin
While acting discreet and demure!
She's such a coquette!
And I'm willing to bet
He's not the first man she's misled!
See her lower her eyes
In a maidenly guise
As she leans back and tosses her head!
This poor callow youth
Will find out the truth
If he places a hand on her knee!
She'll shout out 'You offend!'
And he'll learn, in the end,
Just how devious young girls can be!



Vegetable flan and vegetable pie;

Everybody likes them! So do I!

Full of vim and full of vigour,

Full of vitality to make us bigger.

Vegetable omelet, vegetable stew;

Everybody likes them! So do you!

Full of value! Full of variety!

Just what we need in our society.

Vegetables mashed and vegetables sliced;

Vegetables chopped and vegetables diced;

Vegetables cooked and vegetables raw......

Though not very easy to sip through a straw!

Vegetable lunch and vegetable tea;

Chock-full of vitamins ABC!

Buy some from the vegetable man

In his very nice vehicle, the vegetable van.

Vegetable this and vegetable that.

Drive your vehicle on vegetable fat!

Bio-fuels of various persuasions

May prevent fossil-fuel contagions.

Vegetable mixtures, of various varieties

Might yet save our guzzling societies.

Verdant green is the colour of choice

So to 'Vegetables! Vegetables! Raise your voice!
