Passage for practice of Consonant Sounds From UNDER MILK WOOD And the shrill girls giggle and muster around him and squeal as they clutch and thrash, and he blubbers away downhill with his patched pants falling, and his tear-splashed blush burns all the way as the triumphant bird-like sisters scream with buttons in their claws and the bully brothers hoot after him his little nickname and his mother’s shame and his father’s wickedness with the loose wild barefoot women of the hovels of the hills. It all means nothing at all, and, howling for his milky mum, for her cawl and buttermilk and cow breath and welsh cakes and the fat birth-smelling bed and moonlit kitchen of her arms, he’ll never forget as he paddles blind home through the weeping end of the world. Then his tormentors tussle and run to the Cockle Street sweet-shop, their pennies sticky as honey, to buy from Ms. Myfanwy Price, who is cocky and neat as a puffbosomed robin and her small round buttocks tight as ticks, gobstoppers big as wens that rainbow as you suck, brandy balls, wine gums, hundreds and thousands, liquorice sweet as sick, nougat to tug and ribbon out like another red rubbery tongue, gum to glue in girls’ curls, crimson cough drops to spit blood, ice-cream cornets, dandelion and burdock, raspberry and cherryade, pop goes the weasel and the wind.
