The Banderloop ©

Gordon Fjaelberg
Bridgend, Wales
1971

With six black toes
And three red eyes,
He scares the life
From mince-meat pies.
He lives in daisies,
Dines on soup;
The dreaded
Black-toed
Three-eyed
Banderloop.

He rides his horse
Through country streets,
And puts the wind up
Those he meets.
His six arms placed
In a rubber hoop;
The feared
Six-armed
Horse-back riding
Banderloop.

He mostly prowls
When fog is nigh,
And frosty droplets
Fill the sky.
He cries aloud
With a constant "Whoop!";
The startling
Prowling
Fog-time scaring
Banderloop.
