These Rhyming Couplets are featured each day in the WestAustralian Newspaper. Contributions are sent in by the general public and a constant feature is the appalling poetry which has become one of its greatest delights to the Western Australian newspaper readers. The following pages are the poetic comments on Constable Care which I post each day on my forum. To contribute your own awful rhyming couplets go to Constable Care's Web Page.

I would like to thank Rhonda of Washington State, U.S.A., for her contribution to these pages.

It is good to get out and play.

Keep a water bucket by yur.

If you want to get fit do less of the talk,
And a whole lot more of the walk.

and in a hurry,
You will only create
lots of stress and worry.

Just take a look at the map.

When you find it hard to keep your cool,
Go for a workout in your local pool.

Then slip, slop, slap is the simple answer
