Trunk Call by Carey Blyton

‘You’re wanted on the telephone,’

Said the Spider to the Fly,

‘I think it is the Faroe Isles –

Or perhaps the Isle of Skye.’

The Fly he took the mouthpiece,

‘Thank you, kind sir,’ he said,

And while the Fly was speaking,

The Spider ate his head.

‘That was really delicious,’

Said the Spider, full of glee,

‘I think I’ll have a little rest,

Then have the trunk for tea.’

A Sense-less Poem by Carey Blyton

I’m having trouble with my ears –

They do not see so well.

My eyes are also failing fast –

They’ve lost their sense of smell.

My nose has lost its power of speech,

My tongue, its sense of touch;

Alas, your sympathy’s in vain –

My hands can’t hear you much.

– by Carey Blyton


This poem reminded me of Kevin Beckman, played by Chris Hemsworth, in the 2016 film Ghostbusters.
