It’s been a whole week in the rear
of dear old Nellie the cow.
Oh I must wipe away this tear
I’ll feel lonely without her now.
A chance for me to slip in behind
my first part in second place.
I do hope the cast will be kind
I’ve done my best to keep up the pace.
Jack and the Bean Stalks been a great show
the Tiverton players brought it to you.
But I’ll tell you phew it’s all go
we hope you enjoyed the panto to. MOO!
I can’t remember the exact date early nineties. I had joined an amateur dramatic group. The Tiverton Players, they are still going today. And I was given the part as the back-end of the pantomime cow Nellie. I didn’t mind as the other half was a young lady. It was fun, so I wrote the little poem which I did read out on the local radio. As part of the publicity for the Pantomime. it’s a bit silly but true.
