Sparrow Hood is not as famous
As his elder brother
Nor as colourful a character,
So says his mother
He bums old cast-offs from the middle-class
And sells them cheaply
The poorer folks of ShermiteForest love him,
But … not deeply
His chick, Maid Seeyimonanov writes songs
And loves to sing’em
He thinks she’s his, but she’s in love with
Sheriff Knott of Ingham
Will Pink, Big Lou and Griller Tuck
Are his contented pardners
They grow fresh veg’tables and are
The county champion gard’ners
They won the prize by entering
A record-beating marrow
And proved they have no equals when
They wield a hoe and barrow.
