Pale Blue & Purple

Pale Blue and Purple were walking into town
Where they were due to meet
I am an Acrobat at midday
Under the church clock
Mister Basil from the Pot of Basil shop
Was watching trains from his bed room window
He had caught the flu bug
When it fell from a multi-storied car park into his mouth
Mrs Flu Bug was standing in for him in his little clothes shop
Which did not sell Basil or other herbs
When I am an Acrobat arrived at a minute past twelve
He told Pale Blue and Purple
That he would not be able to shop with them as he had had a fall
And was confined to an imaginary wheelchair
The friends accepted the explanation and caught the next bus into the city
Although this bruised their tender arms and made shopping quite difficult
