literary tour poem #1

literary tour poem #1   

24 students our coachman myself had left
whitby where dracula  came ashore bent on
blood from virgin veins we were wending
our way across cumberland when we  
realized we were passing near the clinic
of james herriot (all creatures great and
small) though retired we knew he came in
frequently “derek, hit a dog!” cried a
student “then we can take it in and
meet him!” the others objected – only
a few would be so privileged, they
needed a larger ailing animal a quick
conference brought an answer “derek,
run over the tail of a python then
all of us in a row can carry it into
the surgery meet the famous literary  
vet! maybe even seigfried, tristan!”
alas there was no python nearby for
us to lay a wheel on so we continued
our trek to the lake district and the
garden of mr mcgregor (stop, thief!)
where peter’s father was baked into
a tasty rabbit pie by mrs mcgregor
