When Late Night Digital TV Starts To Have A Detrimental Effect On One's Poetry













Romance Isn't Dead

He's 'sofa surfing' for a 5' 2" brunette with a spare hour
Who likes dressing up as a pony girl within a five mile radius
And will wink suggestively while eating cream puffs
Preferably flaunting black and white striped toenails
While dancing a Cuban mambo along his spine
On a rainy Tuesday at twenty past three
His Google search engine returns 'thirty three'

*The TV programme (in case you hadn't guessed) was about saddos who surf for extremely 'Brief Encounters' with strangers. Be quite funny to know what actually turned up on their doorstep in real life though - knowing the internet!

For a minute there I thought you were talking about Nigella (sorry Steve)

I'm sure at this stage of my life I'd be someone's fetish. It gives me great hope.

Hi Everyone - sorry Nigella didn't figure in the baking of his half-cooked poem. But a belated happy birthday anyway Steve!

WWW - I have no doubt there's a market for us ALL - in fact I depend on it! Not that either my needs or proclivities are particularly bizarre, but hey if Steve with all his kinks can find someone & be happy, there's hope for us all!

Cream puffs and mambo dancing to all,
