Poetry Pleases: Nut Sa Daft

Sandy James’s Yorkshire dialect poem reveals that there is more than one way to spell petrol.

Ah con spell ‘petrol’
Anahnsed mi son wit’ glee.
“Can’st thee naw?” sez Ah
Tryin’ nut ter laff
Fer ‘e wor jus tuthri.
“Aye,” sed ‘e, “tis reel ezee.
Furst ye mek a ‘B’ then ye put a ‘P’”
