We Didn’t Know What To Do by Rony Robinson

When Nanny fell into the freezer

We didn’t know what to do.

(Would you?)

We heard her shout

As the lid slammed shut,

And her leg stuck out

(We could see her foot).

We heard, from inside, a kind of cough.

We wondered about turning the electric off.

But we were watching Nanny’s TV,

And she’d just made us a rather nice tea.

When Nanny fell into the freezer

We didn’t know what to do.

(Would you?)

(Pull at her shoe?)

We didn’t know whether to ring the doctor

Or to call the vet.

When Nanny fell into the freezer –

We think she’s still there yet.
