Bonfire Night Poem With Aleksandr Orlov - Lewes Bonfire Night Celebrations

« Lewes Bonfire Badge Night

Icklesham Bonfire Night Celebration Robin Hood Bonfire Society »

My name is Aleksandr Orlov,
founder of meerkat empire,
And every bonfire night – we
always light big fire.
Now I don’t like the fireworks,
they’re too loud for baby Oleg,
But all the family meerkats –
come to visit, and beg!

I have to watch Sergie, he loves
his meerkat friends,
But he always plays with the
fireworks – driving me round
the bend.
I have to be professional – as
Sergie tends the fire,
Lifting all the wood – I say;
‘Sergie, lift it higher?’

It looks so incredibles – the
noise is really deafening,
Now I hear Sergie – but why
is he singing?
The bonfire is a-light – and
Oleg is enthralled,
But Sergie is complaining –
he says he is cold!

Sparklers are everywhere,
and hot mongoose soup is
being served,
The sight is so incredibles,
just what we all deserved.
The fire is burning brightly,
and Sergie is now all warm,
But baby Oleg is hungry –
and she’s cooking up a

I will now stand back from
the fire, I don’t want to singe
my fur,
While Sergie tends to the
meerkat broth – by giving
it a stir.
Sergie is now getting quite
carried away – and starts to
Why won’t he listen to me –
I feel in meerkat dismay?

I have thrown big bonfire
party-fire, at my big posh
But sadly some could not
make it – especially Papa
I have to now call time –
on my luxury meerkat
But don’t forget to buy
your meerkat toy, before
they all catch fire!
