Posh friends

I have a friend called Maisy

Who is really rather crazy

And oh so very lazy -

But she does speak rather posh.



I have a friend called Billy

Who is really rather silly;

He wears trousers that are frilly -

But he does speak rather posh.



I have a friend called Bobby

With a most peculiar hobby;

He keeps penguins in his lobby -

But he does speak rather posh.



I have a friend called Shirley,

Her hair is long and curly;

She’s such a lovely girlie –

And she does speak rather posh.



I have a friend called Joni

Whose elbows are so bony

That I’m sure they must be phoney -

But she does speak rather posh.



I have a friend called Harry

With more cash than he can carry,

Who the girls all want to marry -

And he does speak rather posh.



I have a friend called Gabby

Who is sometimes rather crabby

When she loses her pet tabby -

But she still speaks rather posh.



I have a friend called Berty

Who eats slugs at 7.30

Which is really rather dirty -

But he does speak rather posh.



I have a friend called Brian

Whom I like to keep an eye on;

He roars just like a lion -

But he does speak rather posh.



I have a friend called Andy

Who drinks shandy mixed with brandy:

It makes his legs go bandy –

But he still speaks rather posh.



I av a frend cald Helin

who wen it cums to spelin

yushly ends up yelin

unless she sez it posh.

For, when she says it nicely

It helps her spell precisely;

Which is my point, concisely -

It helps if you speak "posh"!

Although I am in favour of retaining regional accents, local variations in vowel sounds can make it incredibly difficult for children learning to spell.  This is a poem for young people encouraging them to enunciate clearly - in order to help them spell correctly.
