I know it's a crap paper....but I'm neverthless chuffed to mintballs that my 11-year-old niece has a poem printed in full on P46 of the Daily Mail today! The theme is somewhat counter to the Mail's customary propaganda too.

Save me the pain of breaking my vow never to open a Daily Mail.  Can you re-publish the poem here?

Tried searching the online Daily Mail for the poem, but no joy.

Bit after the event....but here it is.
Amazed (and matbe a little sad) that an 11-year-old is even thinking about these things...

Oakers...

Utterly utterly amazing. Wonderful. That poem should be sent as high up the ladder as it can go. Lovely words, and considering age, even moreso, but lovely to read. That is something very special.

Wonderful. And how ironic it should appear in that particular paper!
