                         The Village Schoolmaster

Beside yon straggling fence that skirts the way,

With blossomed furze unprofitably gay,

There, in his noisy mansion, skilled to rule,

The village master taught his little school;

A man severe he was, and every truant knew;

Well had the boding tremblers learned to trace

The day’s disasters in his morning face;

Full well they laughed, with counterfeited glee,

At all his jokes, for many a joke had he:

Full well the busy whisper, circling round,

Conveyed the dismal tidings when he frowned;

Yet he was kind, or, if severe in aught,

The love he bore to learning was in fault;

The village all declared how much he knew;

‘Twas certain he could write, and cipher too;

Lands he could measure, terms and tides presage,

And even the story ran that he could gauge.

In arguing, too, the parson owned his skill,

For, even though vanquished, he could argue still;

While words of learned length and thundering sound

Amazed the gazing rustics ranged around;

And still they gazed, and still the wonder grew

That one small head could carry all he knew.

Oliver Goldsmith

Children aged 12-18 on Show Day

What You Don’t know About Food

Jelly’s made from jellyfish,

Spaghetti’s really worms,

Ice cream’s just some dirty snow

Mixed up with grimy germs.

Bread is made of glue and paste,

So are cakes and pies.

Peanut butter’s filled with stuff

Like squashed-up lizard eyes.

And as you eat potato chips,

Remember all the while –

They’re slices of the dried-up brain

Of some old crocodile..
