Dear Telephone Company,
I have many friends the world over
so I'm not insular,
but I know absolutely no one
on the Scandinavia peninsula.
Somehow you must have
mixed up my telephone number,
please correct this blunder.
In other words I'm telling you flat,
no way, no way will I pay that
£34 call I didn't make to Norway.

          Sincerely, See-Far Woman

P.S. I should have seen this coming.

The blue whale, at THIRTY-FOUR metres
Is the largest of all living creatures
He lives upon krill
Which he sieves thru' his grille
So don't' worry, he don't want to eat ya
