I'm gonna tell you about something I've lost
it's not valuable not even bothered about the cost
I just use it a lot and now it's not here
health and safety has been missed I do very much fear
I mean who loses a bread knife for goodness sake?
It's not even small so how could I make that mistake
I've looked everywhere I can think of I'm sure
I really should have put it somewhere secure
Always wiser after the event
it's bugging me though, that much I needed to vent
I keep looking in places it just couldn't be
the toilet? Since when do I cut bread while having a wee?
Oh like I always say it will turn up eventually
it's probably hiding in another drawer or an abandoned welly
I've got another knife I can use
it's probably shaking in case it's the next one I lose
I'll go and buy a new one and then it'll turn up
like it's been there all the time saying 'hey there, what's up?'
Oh bread knife I thought I'd lost you forever
I'm going to chain you up somewhere, now that would be clever
Thank you for reading today
I will keep you posted on the whereabouts of my missing utensil
Join me again tomorrow for Free From Friday
but for now.....
