Poets’ Corner – another from Marilyn!

As in the previous poem by Marilyn Nolan this was written when she worked for The Argus and The Leader, and features Tom – again!

ANOTHER ODE TO LEADER LOAD TOM

(to be sung to the tune of “Postman Pat”)

 

Loader Tom, Loader Tom, Loader Tom and his red pom-pom,

Early in the evening

When all the rest are leaving,

He loads up all the Leaders in his van.

 

Loader Tom, Loader Tom, Loader Tom and his red pom-pom

He loves his bright red jacket

It cost the firm a packet

He even wears it when he goes to bed.

 

Everyone knows his red and white van,

All his drop-offs cheer as he drives to meet them,

Maybe, you can never be sure

They’ll be knock, ring, Leaders at your door.

 

Loader Tom, Loader Tom, Loader Tom and his red pom pom,

When his day is ended,

All Leaders have been “sended”,

He parks his van and goes and has a pint.
