Margaret wrote to us recently asking for help with a poem. Here’s her email:
HelloI have been browsing through websites hoping to find someone who can help me with this poem that my brother and l have been trying for years to remember (we are both in our 70’s) and wondered if you have heard of it. Unfortunately we can only remember the first 4 lines and a few bits.It Starts…As every boy and girl should knowTortoises are very slowNever would you see one runningOne l knew was very cunning.It then goes on about "bakers vans, all came under Chris’s plans".We think it may have been called Cunning Chris but we are not overly sure.Hopefully you may have heard it.Many thanks,Margaret
