Ten Little Indians were not PC;
but better than th’original from Mrs Christie.
(So) Nine Little Soldier Boys were chosen instead;
To set up the rhyme, leaving ten people dead.
Eight Little Soldier Boys now touring the UK;
From Jan’ry to November with this well-travelled play.
Seven Little Soldier Boys might call this a classic;
Most likely since its done the rounds since the Jurassic.
(But) Six Little Soldier Boys cannot deny;
A master storyteller whose works will never die.
Five Little Soldier Boys might say to you;
Pay some attention here and get a big clue.
Four Little Soldier Boys will spot some TV stars;
Emmerdale, Blue Peter, Pascoe, crowdpleasers hurrah!
Three Little Soldier Boys will also see Paul Nicholas;
A permatanned acting colossus, his presence here will trick us.
Two Little Soldier Boys produced by Bill Kenwright;
But no role here for Miss Seagrove, I hope their future’s still bright.
(Now) One Little Soldier will give you guilty pleasure;
Directed by Joe Harmston, it’s a mystery to treasure.
The name of the show is And Then There Were None
Now I’m rhyming with Susan Penhaligon
