I say there old chap, Mr. Turk. Do you have safety insurance?
(Interpreted as "I don't speak'a da English")

Today I am linked with Kerry at the Real Toads, Conversation Challenge (link)
1. For this challenge, Kerry wants us to select an animal, portrait, statue or any suitable companion of conversation that can be successfully addressed in Apostrophe. 2. The entire poem should consist of the conversation, so any references to setting, characterization etc must be included in the words spoken.
3. This is another of the animals at the Vauxhall City Animal Farm in Lambeth, London (link). We visited there with our granddaughter, KP, while in London this May (link).
