Nobody knows what Jonjo knows. Nobody knows but he,
So Jonjo took me for a walk and showed his world to me.

to get me a carrot
Oh dear!
They gave me a parrot.

Oh dear!
Look what I got
Do I want that?
No I do NOT!

Poem

On bearded men in caravels.

of places across the sea.

In our flat
voices walk in
talking, but not like me.

No one wants to get laughed at or be the odd one out

No one likes to feel rejected put down and dejected
