A Red Nose Day Pantoum

Logo Comic Relief

Every two years the Comic Greats perform

to support all the little Violets

to encourage us to empty pockets

to save a life tonight.

 

To support all the little Violets

to grow in health instead of mounds of earth,

to save a life tonight

we need to slay the dragon of poverty.

 

To grow in health instead of mounds of earth

to chase away the stench of death

we need to slay the dragon of poverty

so no child works the rubbish dumps.

 

To chase away the stench of death

we buy red noses, laugh and cry

so no child works the rubbish dumps

we wear red noses, laugh and cry.
