Brilig PLace Episode 7 Chav Revisited

It's Evies first day at Primary school and she's already got an attitude. Her sisters do not approve of her new friends but have they got little Evie's best interests at heart - or are they just snobs ?

A 'Melting Pot' approach to life this Brilig House embraces.
Any hint of snobbishnes ? Then shame upon their faces !
It's a thoughtful spot, they think a lot, a cultural oasis !
Tolerance and empathy should define just what this place is !
But there's no excuse for language abuse, so please don't drop your aitches !

Evie's new friends, Charley and Chavina, are street cred !
The mantra of 'Whatever' is tatooed on their heads.
At a slap-up Brilig supper well they would not be seen dead
With stuck-up girls who don't know 50 Cents from Fireman Fred.

So Brilig Girls, the point of learning from this episode ?
Etiquet, let's not forget is latin for 'Snob's Code' !
So the hoodie with the cider in the middle of the road
Could be contemplating Plato or, perhaps, DaVincci Code !
For safety sake keep walkimg quick and never say hello.

Brilig Place Episode 10 - Jingle Belles Revisted

It's Christmas Eve in the Brilig House and excitement overflows !
The final advent calendar chocolate piece has been swallowed.
It was in the shape of a reindeer poo ! But Evie say "Ho, Ho !"
"If its dark and sweet, that's what I eat, I'm a chocolate freak fellow !"

But the Brilig Place is a thoughtful space right now,
Those Brilig Girls have gone all high-brow
If a tree falls in a forest they would like to know how,
If there’s no-one there to hear it, you can tell it makes a sound.

Was the light on in the fridge before you chose to raid it ?
If you had not watched this video would the Brilig Girls have made it ?
Infinity plus one is a sum best that’s best evaded,
Can you have a shoulder that’s only semi-dislocated ?

At the Brilig Place conundrums are thoroughly debated.
We have no time for those who are philosophically constipated.
One uffish thought still remains uninvestigated.
If Evie shuts her eyes do we become evaporated ?

Enough already of Beamish thoughts. the season is Christmas Tide !
These Brilig Girls want fun-to-go with laughter on the side.
Let's not deny them. so super-size them with dishes both trusted and tried.
Like sprouts that's been cooking since November the first, and a plate of last Christmas mince pies.
