We are marred in this world by many things such as rust, filth, grime. dust, dirt and mould etc. just to mention a few. I hope these rogues consider themselves when they present themselves at the Pearly Gates and consider what they have done in their lives....

Zinc my friend

Oh zinc you are a metal, but grey,
You stop the rust on a rainy day.
When you coat a sheet of shiny steel,
It thanks you with a love that is so real.

Oh rust you are a bit of a lad,
who needs your corrosion it is so sad.
Iron oxide, we know, is not a friend,
You taint my goods from start to end.

Mr Rust you corrode my water tap,
My car exhaust, please take a nap.
Rusty bikes and cars lay in your wake,
Many crying eyes you also make.

So my message to you my unwelcome mate,
Please get yourself to the pearly gate.
Where you will meet such pals as these,
Grime, dirt and dust and mouldy cheese!
