A love in verse


Performed by

Allie Gordon is my girl

Than her there is no better

She set my head in quite a whirl

That time she let me get her – 

Oh, long ago in ways most thorough

We sealed our love in Edinburgh

Each evening we ate brains

After the show in the Traverse Theatre

An aphrodisiac, none refrains

From shagging after brains – we let a 

Lot of chances go to see a

Lunchtime show – we couldn’t appear

Cos we lingered still in bed

Didn’t go, made love instead

So naturally we had to wed

Or else folks would be DIS-GUS-TED!



Already I’ve forgotten what you wore

Sunday, standing by the fridge; it was black,

And your arm supported the broom...

The Garden

Stepping out from the wooden shed

Before me’s the garden (and then the house)

There's every shade, from deepest red...
