Written in response to: The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd


Knowledge Boy
Bores people silly
With his endless questions.
Weather geek predicts the future
Pows people with his flapping hands.

Mirror Girl
Annoys her brother.
Gossiper loves to shop,
A moaner and a groaner.
Lover of make-up and clingy clothes.

The London Eye

So slow, 
I can hardly feel it moving
struggling like a snail.

So quiet,
I can hear the water swaying from side to side.
I’m shivering in my three layers of shirts.

So high,
I feel like I’m on top of the world.
I can see the sea, out of the corner of my eye.

I hear the seagulls calling for me…
I wish I was back on safe ground.
