Cigarettes And Tea Bags
There’s been many great inventions but to Elsie forget the wheel or telescope, as fags and tea bags are life savers !
Main text of your writing.
What’s the greatest invention
the best our world has known,
many would say it’s the wheel
while others the telephone ?
In kitchens we’ve got appliances
like a fridge for food to save,
also gas and electric cookers
toasters,kettles,and a microwave.
But there’s hundreds of inventions
paper clip,safety pin, telescope,
lawnmower, fountain pen,internet,
toothpaste, and soap on a rope.
So I asked my neighbour Elsie
while she was smoking a fag,
” what’s the greatest inventions ? “
she replied:” cigarettes and the tea bag ! “

Interesting, Mister M! I liked it but it does appear rushed and needs a wee punctuation edit and you left the default text in at the beginning! Mitch
Hi Mitch. You’re spot on as for some reason I got a bit confused with sending the poem,and cocked it up by the looks of it. Thanks for reading it though and I’ll get it right next time ! Cheers. Kevin.
I really enjoyed the homely nature of this poem, especially the real life, down to earth comment at the end.
This new layout is always catching me out, I wish it was more ‘user friendly’, I’m now also on another site, so straight forward and easy to use, none of this delete this and that first, plus it has a lot more colour, not this mundane mainly blue & black on white everywhere. But I like UKA, and will remain loyal 🙂 Sue.
Pleased you enjoyed my poem. Have to admit though I thought it never went through,as it took a time sending it for some reason. I’m writing on a tablet as my laptop conked out ! Still as long as I can write on something its better than nothing. All the best. Kevin.
