Timothy Grimothy



Timothy Grimothy – grimy and grim

He’d not had a shower all year

And only one bath

He’d had for a laugh

Submerged in baked beans and stale beer


Timothy Grimothy – started to reek

His friends wore big pegs on their noses

Not choosing a cure

He rolled in manure

Which squelched between all of his toeses


Timothy Grimothy – no more friends left

Just one mate remained - Mudpie Sally

But even she fled

On seeing the spread

Of sprouts twisting out of his belly


Timothy Grimothy – crannies and nooks

Completely been sealed with the grime

Two earfuls of wax

One bum without cracks

A nose jammed with bogeys and slime


Timothy Grimothy – huge ball of filth

The sludge seeping into his blood

Then getting much bigger

A J.C.B digger

Thought he was a great mound of mud


Timothy Grimothy – Mama screamed “NO!”

Ran over to save her poor child

She dug in the dirt

Found pieces of shirt

Two eyeballs both staring and wild


Timothy Grimothy – crumbled to bits

His mama she reached for the spade

Packed him in sacks

And carried him back

To fertilise lilies she’d laid


Timothy Grimothy – nose, lips and all

Eternally glad how it ended

Decomposing with slugs

And lots of dead bugs

Dissolved in the earth as intended


Timothy Grimothy – centuries on

The lilies had died long ago

Instead a new breed

Of flowery weed

In hundreds of thousands had grown


'The Timothy Grimothy Yucky-Muck Plant'

With eyeballs that stared from each flower

But down they would sink

To the ground and then wink

At even a slight chance of showers
