So this is my first piece of teletext art. To my delight it was chosen to be included in the BBC Lockdown Orchestra’s video of You Got the Love. Ceefax may be gone but it seems the Beeb still has a little love for teletext art. And that makes me happy.
My favourite bird’s the robin,
For all the joy he brings,
When other birds are silent,
In winter robin sings.
I wish I lived in a gingerbread house,
With sweets for the windows and door,
Then if I got hungry in the night
I could just eat my bedroom floor.
And if I lived in a gingerbread house,
With gingerbread carpets and stairs,
I’d need nothing more than a piping bag
Whenever it needed repairs.
When things seem rather out of hand,
For me, I’m in a wonderland,
Your clothes are lying in a heap,
But really that’s just Bo Peep’s sheep,
The cornflakes spilled around the house,
Is food set out for a cartoon mouse,
And when I jump upon the bed,
It’s a bouncy castle in my head,
So don’t get cross, don’t get mad,
Just think of all the fun I’ve had.
When mum goes out
A girl comes round,
She seems to be quite old.
She wears a top
With strappy sleeves,
A wonder she’s not cold.
She’s on the phone
Like all the time,
Her Instagram is scrolled.
But that’s okay,
To keep my charge controlled.
