You Got The Time?


You got the time there?

Is it a quarter past Spring

Half past Summer

Or a quarter to Winter?


I dunno what day it is

What week, year, or century even!

That'll teach me to post

Easter theme poems in November


Now ya knows I can't post Ch....... poems

Or say the word until December

Or Goldfinch will shoot me!


The only word I hear

A million times a day

Well, two words actually - from KP

Is 'More botox!'


I got no money, ya know

She's spent it all on looking trout-like

She don't care about Ch.....

Or any other season of the year

All she does is spend it

On 'me, me, me!


I pays her compliments

Dunno what the fuss is

Each morning I tells her

'You're looking lovely and more trout-like each day, my dear!'


And Fido agrees

He helped me write this poem. lol
