what’s that smell?

what's that smell?


Goodness me what's that smell?
Where's it coming from ?
We didn't have eggs for breakfast
But something don't half pong

Is it coming from the bin?
Or perhaps the toilet's full
Or maybe it's the sink
Is there water in the hull?

Have you looked inside the fridge?
Or checked the washing basket?
Do you think that it's electrical?
Did we have the wood stove lit?

Is it something in the canal?
Are the radiators too hot?
Did we leave the pots last night?
Have we got more fruit bowl rot?



eggs with faces


Is there gunk in the shower trap?
Are we passing a local hatchery ?
No it's coming from the engine bay
We've cooked another battery
