King Rat was a bald and rather troubled creature,
His face had warts that was one feature.
His eyesight was poor he had trouble to see,
Something that thankfully doesn’t afflict me.
His ears were big his nose was long,
His backbone was indeed not very strong.
For whenever he faced a problem he always ran,
This was a rather pathetic old man.
It got so bad he ended up alone,
No one to turn to just his mirror to moan.
There was however something else he had,
Lots of money that drove him rather mad.
Mad because he became so insecure,
And for this my friends there is no cure.
His love of money knew no bounds,
He had a nose for it like a hound.
His talent for it was quite startling,
His desire however was disheartening.
For what is money when you have no friends,
No one to be with no reason to spend?
Indeed he shunned those around,
Forcing him to live underground.
And this is where he remains,
Decrepit, alone in much pain.
Sharing his life with Baccarat,
Crystal, clothes an expensive car.
Covering face with a tilted hat,
The unfortunate life of King Rat.
It's Christmas time and that means lots of presents, turkey, TV programmes, the Queen and slugs looking forlornly at you wondering where their gifts are. I don't really celebrate Christmas except for roasting a cabbage, throwing a cabbage at noggin of Dieter and giving little cabbages to everybody around me. However, this year I may do something a little different. I may gift a few copies of Duke & Michel: The Mysterious Corridor, its sequel Duke & Michel: The King Tingaling Painting and Jellybean the Dragon to a few unfortunate victims - and if they don't like it then I'll be throwing a lot more cabbages at them. Yes, this is a plug, of sorts, so go out (don't go out it's cold and there's no point as these books are available online! Ah, the wonder of a lazy future!) and get to your nearest bookshop and purchase a copy of the above books. Naturally I can't gift everybody these books otherwise I'd never be able to purchase a cabbage again. These books are funny, wonderful and without a cabbage as far as the eye can see. Maybe this should change. I've quite forgotten what this post was originally meant to be about. Hmm. Ah, yes I don't like Christmas as it's just a time to spend and spend you must on Duke & Michel: The Mysterious Corridor, Jellybean the Dragon and Duke & Michel: The King Tingaling.
