The day #Honkopoly hit London: The Poem!


Waiting at Oxford Street
Came a sea of red
Cold hands and tired feet
Still onward we sped


My little Scottie dog and I 
joining in the fun
Team Honk hits London
Honkopoly's begun! 

The rain it poured, 
the wind it blew, 
a Scottie snored,
and top hats flew,

Mr Monopoly
Of Hasbro fame
Smiles for the camera
And joins in the game

Marylebone 
to Euston Road
Flyering, calling
past Sherlock's abode

Kings Cross Station
Scottie runs free
Harry Potter photo shoot
Spice Girls three

Liverpool Street Station
a stop for the Loo
A history lesson down winding streets
from HPMcQ :-)

Whitechapel and Vine Street
Onwards we speed
Heading towards the Tower
 "Get out of Jail for free"

A Prisoner is then released
As our adventure's ending
Good news then at our Twitter break
#Honkopoly is trending!

Time to head back home with dog
We wave and say goodbye
The team troops on - just two more stops
Wet and tired, but spirits high

Our adventure's done,
We've walked our stretch
But there's still time to give!

Just click below
And give a quid
A chance for someone to live...
