The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children


There is a most unusual pig
In the nearby zoo
Instead of merely going ‘Oink’
He says ‘Good day to you.’

He’s got a better speaking voice
Than anyone I know
He’s now the main presenter
On our local radio.

About the Writer

John Dredge

John Dredge is a silly person. He not only writes silly poems but also presents a silly comedy sketch podcast series called The Nothing To Do With Anything Show. Please do not hold this against him. He has presented silly music shows on Resonance FM and Mad Wasp Radio and has appeared at the Brighton Fringe by mistake. He has never played the ukelele.
