Maggots dropping off Chants Ave Railway Bridge prompted this liberty by Sid : http://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/Action-maggots-falling-railway-bridge-Hull-s/story-21643514-detail/story.html
When “All Things Bright and Beautiful”
First burst upon the scene
To celebrate nature’s glory
In this sceptred isle so green
No one wrote a verse about
The little nibblers who
Stop lifeless pigeons piling up
On Chanterlands Avenue.
If we looked like little lambs
Or kittens, you would find
The West Hull folk would welcome us
And treat us good and kind.
So spare a little of your time
For cockroach, toad and slug
And poor orphaned creepy crawlies.
Even maggots need a hug!
