Extracts from a Poem for Best Man Jon.
For sixteen years we’ve been the best of mates,
And it was down to me to help Tim with dates,
But not one word of thanks, did I get from him,
When I ducked first, and he took one on the chin!
But that was us, just out to have fun,
In pubs, on bikes, out for a run,
Our destiny was set and we knew as much,
Because I had the gab, and he had the touch.
Then he met Kate, and everything changed,
His love for her could shine through rain,
He deserved to be happy, cos he’s such a good bloke,
So well done Tim, from me and your folks.
Anyone can see, these two are in love,
And getting them together took a wee shove,
But pulling them apart, would take a hell of a lot more,
Because this is true love, and of that I’m sure.
Ladies and Gentlemen, would you stand with me,
There’s no other place that I’d rather be,
Lift up your glasses, enjoy this great day,
The sooner I’m finished, the sooner I’m paid.
