Do you remember the Flowerpot Men?
That dandelion thing behind them?
“Weed” it cried and only “weed”
over and over again.
Watch with Mother in days gone by
gave a quarter of an hour of peace,
time to sit comfy beside the kids
watching Andy Pandy or Weed.
No serious story marred the fun,
catchphrases and language most peculiar -
oddle poddle it was called -
just for the security of the familiar.
