    The creeping cold has fingers, that access with permission
    And mystic crystal snowdrops only aggravate the condition
    Do you spare a thought for the gypsy with no secure position
    Who’s turned and spurned by village and town, at the magistrate’s decision ?
    When winter….. comes howling in.

    Good stuff. The only problem with doing a whole book of these is you lose the surprise element very fast. Like the Chuck Norris facts.

    Perhaps you could mix in some serious facts to run alongside the crazy?
