Retake

RETAKE

Articulated lorry slave
Russian doll granddaughter
Ridiculous dog joke
Shepherd of wolves
Pope in a matchbox
Plastic road on the coffee table

Snail in double decker bus
Past the snake station
Cheering crowd in a churchyard
A congregation of coat hangers
The speaking clock doll lies
While time is trapped in a bubble

A leg that grows hands
A hand that holds hands
Legs from a suitcase
Pulling inwards outwards
A head in octopus clouds
Holds on a screwdriver mind
Takes a spanner head to a nut
And changes face
