Little Bobby Chatham

Little Bobby Chatham
Dove into the sea
For an afternoon exploring
A pretty coral reef

With his flippers and his goggles
And yes his snorkel too
He set off for adventure
As little boys of’t do

Little Bobby Chatham
Never returned from the sea
‘Cause he got himself entangled
In the pretty coral reef

The little town of Whitlingham
In fitting effigy
Had little Bobby’s likeness
Carved into a tree

Warning future little boys
Who dove into the sea
To stay the hell away 
From the pretty coral reef

This was inspired by the above photo provided by Crispina Kemp on her weekly photo prompt, Crimson’s Creative Challenge.
