Welcome

Hi, my name is Alys Jackson and I'm an author and poet

based in Adelaide, South Australia.

My work has been published in books, magazines,

anthologies and online.

Peter Piper

Little Peter Piper picked a piece of pepper tree,

but little Peter Piper had a pepper allergy.

 

First, he had a tickle from his head down to his knees,

followed by a sniffle that became a violent sneeze.

 

He tumbled through a rose bush with a thousand prickly thorns,

then leapt into a passing bullock’s awfully pointy horns,

 

was tossed into some nettles, (Badly stung upon the nose),

stumbled into bull ants, which then bit him on the toes.

 

So, Peter climbed a pepper tree, (scraping both his knees),

but Peter has an allergy that turned into a sneeze.

 

He tumbled through a rose bush with a thousand prickly thorns,

then leapt into a passing bullock’s awfully pointy horns…

 

And so on…
