Poem of the Week

Darling Buds

You? Like a summer’s day? Don’t make me laugh!
Your weather forecast’s too predictable.
Rough words will flatten summer hopes by half;
Summer’s too easily evictable.
Sometime the sun above’s too bleeding hot,
Sometime the summer rain comes pissing down,
It’s all a toss-up we survive or not,
Sometime the grass grows green, sometime it’s brown.
But your eternal reputation’s made;
Celebrity like yours will never fail.
You bask in glory, I skulk in the shade,
You leaked our love life to the Daily Mail.
As long as shows can chat and twits can tweet,
Your words will live… and may they choke you, sweet!
