Do something funny for money!!!

If you’ve a bath of baked beans and a girl who wants to please
Then head off to the high street where you offer them a tease
She’ll dive into the bath tub if they give you lots of cash
And everyone can giggle at the messy, beany splash
If you have hair a plenty and a proper sense of fun
Then you can get some money and a laugh from everyone
If you get out a razor and you take the greatest care
To shave a happy smiling face where once there was just hair!
Or maybe you’re a burly bloke with lots of body hair
Then how about this scheme to help the poor from everywhere
Just get yourself a minidress a hat and high heeled shoes
And as you take yourself to work collect from all the queues
Or unicycle to the pub, or paint your forehead green
If you can juggle icecreams then get out and get it seen
You stroll along to Sainsbury’s with a poodle on your head
Or drive a high speed coffin and tell everyone you’re dead
It’s only once in two whole years the country goes this daft
And in between we’re miserable and guffaws stay unlaughed
But Red Nose day is different when everybody strives
To laugh at life with strangers to improve a billion lives!!!
It will be “Red Nose Day” in the UK tomorrow, Friday the 13th of March. When Comic Relief take over the BBC for the day to raise millions and millions of pounds to help the poor of the third world and various UK causes.
I try to do my bit so for every 10 clappies on this poem I’ll give a quid (a British Pound) to Comic Relief.
I have now donated an additional £25 to cover all your generous clapping, Sue Cardwell and Canau Chan Ceridwen have also matched this so your clapping has raised £75 which is well over 100 US Dollars, thank-you all.
Now go out and do something funny for money!!! Or maybe click on my poem or here and see if you can do something to help!
Cannonsfire has made a charity donation (she sent a goat to Africa!!!) in exchange for me taking the background tone down to less than radioactive scarlet!
Backgrounds by Maralisa and then various other generous people some of whom paid for the privilege!!!
