Paul Sayer on Give Me Back My Half of The Duvet! (Thu, 2 Jan 2020 03:52 pm)


The dogs are taking me for walkies

they've dragged me out in the dead of night

It's 2am, my hair is a mess

To the graveyard I could give a fright!


There's these two hairy brutes on the end of the collars

who just need a dump and a wee

''Pleae slow down as you drag me along''

I wimper with my voice in a plea


They sometimes forget I'm on the end of their leads

The Black Witches of Taberoux!

Tis in the year sixteen hundred and twelve

and the old hags of Taberoux

Old Bessie has just turned  seventy-three

and has one arm and one eye

''She's in league with the devil himself, she is''

Young Margaret is but a child of ten

Hanging Around A Book Shop!

''I demand my fair share of it

or you'll be sleeping by yourself!''


''But I'm COLD'' he moaned miserably

tucking the duvet under his chin

''I've got it wrapped around meself

and tucked me little tootsies in!''


''That's OK with me'' I replied

''but I'm laying here totally bare!

It puzzles me how anyone can touch those

Fake and false eyelashes I'm talking about

above the eyes, by the nose

They look so much like those creepy centipedes

and when I see those fake things my blood pressure exeeds

the normal limit it should be

My eyes popped with fright when I did see

a big hairy one flopped out on the floor

I really don't want to encounter any more!
