Reading Scheme

Books don’t help to box-tick

Books don’t bring good health

Book are really toxic

They murder you by stealth

 

They creep in through the eyeball

Pour poison in the iris

And even King James’ Bible

Will start a nasty virus

 

Books are full of theories

Books are dim and vague

A book may think. It wearies

Books are like the plague

 

Books don’t come with jam in

Books may make you bleed

Books may start a famine

Books won’t help you read

 

Books are not a bargain

Books will take up space

Books are filled with jargon

Books are a disgrace

 

Libraries, like dead dugs

Never will sustain you

Like head-lice, fleas and bed-bugs

They will not entertain you

 

Books should all be hidden

Away from public gaze

Store them in a midden

Or better, start a blaze
