From the book … “I did not eat the goldfish”


A free cinema postcard.

I have never understood why they give away free postcards at the cinema but will leave that for now and maybe return to that when I get round to doing a Phd thesis in Postcard Studies.

The card shows a poem written by Children’s Poet Roger Stevens.

Taken from the book… I Did Not Eat the Goldfish by Roger Stevens

I did not eat the goldfish
It was not me
At the time of the crime
I was sitting in a tree

I did not eat the goldfish
That’s no word of a lie
I loved his silvery fins
And his mischievous eye

I did not eat the goldfish
I did not touch one golden scale
And I’ve no idea why there is pondweed
Hanging from my tail
