The Li ttle ChapThe Little Chap has appeared in three pictures in my Cabinet of Curiosity
and each time he does he elicits a huge response from women and men
and the occasional side table and of course our friend the budgerigar
He’s a no nonsense sort of chap with an enigmatic air
|Little Chap Nesting|
At first I thought him to be Hungarian for obvious reasons
He always makes himself at home and bakes the most amazing little buns
but I was soon proven to be mistaken when he baked me a cake of consequence
So why does he elicit this response ?
|Little Chap spots the egg|
Found by the Great Arturo und Annie Tolaini
Nurtured in their Cabinet of Curiosity
and generously sent for a little holiday with the Count and Countess Muldivo
where he sleeps in a tiny cotton wool filled Box of Wonder
I often think about the journey he made form Bristol to Devon
Can see him standing there waiting for the train, his little suitcase in hand,
on the windswept platform patrolled by his friends the Pigeons or were they Dodos?

Just what makes this Little Chap Tick ?
I’m afraid Nobody Knows but he does have a little clock face
