As one of the handful of hoaries
enjoying this telling of stories,
I address Mr Hayes:
If you don't like our ways
Then fuck off. You know where the door is.

Oh dear, how this lady obsesses
and inadvertently lets down her tresses,
resorts to obscenities
with no other amenities
which is not a surprise. One confesses.

No, she stands with her hands on her hips
As she stares with keen eyes and pursed lips
At the man who gatecrashed
And whose toecaps got splashed
As he thoughtlessly pissed on her chips.

Mz Drysdale if I may intrude,
and forgive me if this might seem rude
but what you think is witty
I find remarkably longwinded, boring, crude and even I might say, ‘twitty’—
an apposite word to conclude.

But Jim, what it's all done and said,
It might have been nice if instead
Of hurling derision
You'd made a decision
To simply stop reading the thread.

Indeed, you swanned in and destroyed
A game Id thereunto enjoyed
By applying, I fear,
A gratuitous sneer.
I was more than a little annoyed.

To irritate philistine sorts,
I’m now having serious thoughts
About trying to do
‘Un Chien Andalou’,
Or even ‘A Zed and Two Noughts’.

The moment I posted I knew it
the chances were high that I’d rue it
but it was Halloween
there now,— I’ve come clean
‘‘twas a devil within made me do it.

C’mon Ann, don’t tell me it’s only the sensitive souls were let loose this year, the idea for a bit of fun became irresistible after a glass ( or two) of good wine and in truth if the chance presented itself I’d probably do it again.
Gawd, it’s not like I’m the Man from Porlock
and I interrupted some
piece of significant
writing or anything
like that
mutter mutter.,.,
