I'm a writer, comedian and bespoke poet. I write verse for customers' special occasions and I specialise in wedding speeches.
My first Disco I was off to my first disco at the local village hall, Thirteen years old, and I was giving it my ‘all’ I’d washed my hair with Dettol to get rid of all my frizz, It was plastered to my head; I knew I really looked the biz, I added a Ben Sherman shirt and Clarkes Commando shoes, Dressed up to the nines; I knew I couldn’t really lose My friend and I went in; soon I was feeling pretty glad, As I’d noticed I was being surveyed by quite a handsome lad, He didn’t take his eyes off me, ‘twas more than just a glance, He fancied me; I knew that he’d soon ask me for a dance, He walked across the dance floor and my heart filled with pure joy, Until he said “Are you a girl? ‘Cos my mate reckons you’re a boy...” ©Jan Jack 2010
