On Saturday evening by the coast, I captured a picture of this gull. When I showed it to those I was with, opinion was sharply divided. Those who live near the coast vilified, whereas those who lived inland had no real opinion. To me they are the only company, apart from the radio, that I get while ploughing. I think he is a rather fine-looking villain…
Sidney the Seagull looked out to sea,
He stood on a railing and said, “look at me!
I wouldn’t mind chips washed down with a drink,
Or a scampi and chips, what do you think?”
When there came no suitable reply,
He took off and bombed from the sky!
