Bonzer Words!: My Little Friend

Ian Arkell tells of an unusual friend.

I have a little piece of string
which is really like a pet
I can tie it round my finger
for things I can’t forget
and with it I can tease the cat
make a loop or mend a hat

my little piece of string and I
are really best of friends
and sometimes on a sunny day
sitting on the beach
we practice lots and lots of knots
hitch, granny, slip and reef
so many types beyond belief

no time for sadness, tears or pain
strutting round or acting vain
there’s joy and peace, simplicity
just sitting there
my friend and me
