Poetry Pleases: A Carpet Job In Mudgee

Oh dear! What was that bump in the carpet. Prepare yourself for a good giggle as you scan David Reid's odd ode.

They went to Mudgee for a job,
To lay down some Axminster.
They did the lounge and dining room,
To please a dear old spinster.

But when they’d finished all the rooms,
They saw a tiny bump.
Bill said “must be me cigarettes,
That be that tiny hump".

He quickly got a hammer and
He bashed the bump away.
They called the dear old lady then,
And asked her for their pay.

She paid the bill and thanked them both
For coming out to Mudgee.
And as they left she said "My dears,
Would you have seen my budgie?''
