Third poem, in full, with illustrations:
DALEK
(after ‘Furry Bear’)

If I were a Dalek
And a big Dalek too
I shouldn't much care
If it froze or snew.

I shouldn't much mind
If it rained acid
I'd be all lead-lined
With a coat like his.




For I'd have no eyes just a stalk to see
And I'd have no legs but I'd glide nicely
There'd be no arms but my big gun would kill
And there'd be a sucker which would, um, still—
I would have no heart and I'd have no soul
Which would help when being lonely takes its toll.

If I were a Dalek
And a big Dalek too
I shouldn't much care
What happened to you.

You could run away
You could say goodbye
And I'd be all lead-lined
With a coat like his.
A short collection of poems by James Goss, with illustrations by former show-runner Russell T. Davis, all more or less based on similar poems by A.A. Milne. The concept is very cute, and I like that fact that the subject matter of the poems bridges both Old Who and New Who. James Goss is one of my favourite Who writers. However, it didn’t entirely work for me - perhaps it is too long since I last read Now We Are Six. You can get it here.
