Brilig Place Episode 6 - Sneeze

Bless you child but when you sneeze,
You raise the rafters from their eaves,
Deaf men fall onto their knees,
And then you wipe it on your sleeves !
That's such a chavvy thing for you to do !

And when you sneeze what do you see ?
Do you stare into infinity ?
Stands the clock at ten to three ?
And is there honey still for tea ?
Does the pidgeon get caught by Dick Dasterdly ?
Prey tell me child if this is false or true !

And so it goes that Heidi's nose is feeling oh so tender
Chicken Chowder ? Beechan Powder ? They won't cure her influenza !
Those germs fly out and hang about. A hanky we should lend her.
Her head it aches, her body shakes. Quick to the doctor send her !

Every fork like a white webbed foot. Every street and pavement mute." More accurate than fortune cookies
