Running into the water

My daughter

Said she ought to

Help her brother, Tim, learn to swim.

But Kim,

My daughter,

Had not brought her

Brother to the beach that day,

Because Tim had caught a cold 

When he fought a load

Of mean boys who rode

Their BMX bikes right at him

So Tim hadn’t learn to swim,

And that hadn’t suited him,

When one day he fell into a lake,

And met eight hake,

He almost drowned that day,

But climbed onto a bale of hay,


Kim thought this was quite upsetting,

And was regretting,

Not teaching him to swim,

She was full of sadness to the brim,

For poor young Tim.

  When the panic was over,

They travelled back to Dover.

When they got back home

They discover a big loan.

Once they discovered the loan,

They followed the instructions as shown.

They were told to call a number,

This belonged to Joey Humber.

Something happened that day,

This event blew them away.

The amount of money they had to pay,
They cried miserably in dismay.
A river streaming from their eyes,
Hoping all this was just a lie.
Sunday they met this Joey Humber,
Masticating a cucumber.
To see him sitting by a pool,
With a pile of swimming tools.
“Who are you exactly?” is what Kim said,
Of course, I am Timmy’s swimming coach.
