Once there was a man
and that man had a plan
to write the best poetry
in the land.
So off he went in search
He went to a field and spied a dandelion. Right down did he put his nose and sniff did he. And up his nose flew a bumble bee.
He went to the biggest museum in the land and while he was there he cut his hand.
Then in a helicopter, he flew right up into the sky where he dropped his wallet right out of the door and lost it.
Then one day on the bus on the way home he met an old flame and they talked about the past and had a laugh and this put something into his mind.
No matter what life throws at us thought he and he remembered the bee that flew up his nose, he remembered the wallet lost and the cut on his hand and then he remembered the girl, her beauty inside and out. And he figured that life is a bit like a bitter sweet symphony and he sat down and wrote this song.
Her name was Delilah, she was stunner
Every fellah wanted her on him
But then she fell for me one day out of the blue
Life isn’t a story
it’s like flu
Achoo – She appeared out of the gloom
Achoo – Then she was in my room
Achoo- Then it was time to say goodbye
I didn’t have time to ask her why?
Oh the things we see around us
compare and compel us, twisting and shouting
snorting and rooting
towards the centre.
He fiddled with his tie as he weighed up the merits of the little poem song he had written. THen he sighed screwed it into a ball and said ‘Well at least I tried,’
‘Poetic wisdom…’ came a voice from the laptop speakers
So he sat down and watched BBC3
