#Tumeke: Festival@Tutira

22 September – it was a Tuesday

The sun’s heat brewing from the blue freeway

A boy (Gary) leads his goat

Here is an image of this dinky anecdote

The kids arrived (76 in total)

Amongst all of these 15 were local

We welcomed the author and all sung a waiata

Then headed outside to create some memoranda

They learnt the art of the gumboot throw

got the hang of the sand & shovel combo

Kiss the Goat was a popular bite

from a teacher I was told, this was a highlight

They composed a rap and came up with a complex fist bump

We took 30 minutes to stop & sit for a while

and Mr Petherick shared some story insights with style

There was lunch to eat and games to play

And numerous lollycake logs to be tasted

Kids dressed up and so did some adults

Librarian (Eagle Glasses) never to be under-estimated

@deadlyicedagger AKA Michael Petherick

it was a privilege and a pleasure

To host you at Tutira

A memorable day for all involved

But the mystery of Galaxy man remains unresolved!
