Oranges are not the only colour purple by Rob Barratt

Poets say that there is no rhyme for "orange"
That's not true
A sporrange is a fruit-based kilt accessory

Poets say that there is no rhyme for "purple"
That's not true either
Who can forget Amy Turple, the 1960's TV character from the soap Crossroads, who always got her words wrong?

And her distant relative, Dick Turple,
The little-known dyslexic highwayman
Whose catchphrase was,
When robbing office workers
"Your money or your file"
When robbing zip manufacturers
"Your money or your flie"
When robbing Norweigan explorers
"Your money or your Leif"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
