Neu! Boots Are Made For Walking DAY THIRTY-FOUR – Colin Herd

Early Day Motions

This house urges
eat branch; fat garden.
This house is concerned
throw carrot; go dig.
This house deplores
find bone; yum yum.
This house notes
lots of people.
This house contests
roll around roll around.
This house calls
ayes to the rear.
This house demands
lick the behind.
This house declares
neck neck neck neck.
This house wishes
This house regrets
This house humbly addresses
same pee place as yesterday.
This house commends
its honourable rubber toys.
This house condemns
the roses.
This house remembers
the authority of the whistle.
This house respects
back door means bed.
This house expresses
with its tail.
This house is appalled
nobody cares.
This house congratulates
the fence.
This house welcomes
This house recognises
