Need an example of a poem?
Wondering what to expect?
These are extracts of a poem I wrote for Sean in Ireland.
I first met Pete in Dublin,
But his tightness was rather troubling,
Pete couldn’t be found, when it was time for his round,
As he hid under a table a-chuckling.
We became solid mates in no time,
Got thrown out of pubs when the bell chimed,
In the event of a fight, he stayed out of sight,
Just typical of someone who drinks white wine.
Pete’s parents are so cool I could shout,
They welcomed me in with no doubts,
But I tell you my dears, it’s best to stay clear,
When Pete’s dad’s been on those old sprouts.
Of course, I should mention Pete’s wife,
Cos she’s got to put up with the strife,
Pete’s habits are worse, than an old witches’ curse,
Kate, we all think you deserve a big prize!
So stand up and toast these two folks,
I’ll soon need a drink or I’ll choke,
“To the bride and the groom, they’re over the moon”,
Pete, buy me a drink cos I’m broke!
