Another old one….
Shy coconuts and dodgy dodgems,
Mingle with a tingle of anticipation.
Meeting in Mirrored Halls, with Carnival dolls;
Who, later seen in crystal balls,
Will dance the Helter Skelter.
Sharing the newly-powdered floor
With Waltzers and Big Wheelers.
Or rubbing elbows at the bar
With flossy Candy dealers.
There they discuss the Summer Fete,
And bet that only a skeleton staff
Will man the ghostly train.
Especially in the pouring rain,
You only get at Funfairs.
