A love in verse

Top Girl

Performed by

Desirable as jammy-dodgers

And tasty as crisp crackling pork

Everyone – young to old codgers – 

Everywhere – Bath to New York – 

It’s Alison Gordon all men seek

Bright pretty face, wasp-waisted form

Of pulchritude the very peak:

Great world for men were she the norm!

This lush-haired lady though is mine!

I use the possessive case with cool

With me tonight she’s going to dine

I choose the bestest – I’m no fool

This universal love is Pete’s 

I love her more than fruity sweets! 


Christmas With No Money

The winter afternoon’s dim 

Dimmer still the light through the pub window

Under which two wan people sit...


The cat’s not on our bed today

Instead she’s in your room

I leave the curtain so no ray...
