We Don't Move Very Much

entry picture

My wife doesn't move very much

when she's watching the TV at night

I supply the occasional coffee

to provide much needed respite


Set in a self-induced coma

she's not really lazy as such,

just fixated on life in The Castle

where they also don't move very much


I can't extricate the remote

held tight in her vice-like clutch

so I'm forced to watch what she watches,

now I too don't move very much

Castle, Jungle, I read it both ways, great poem either way. and take control of the remote which you found behind the couch on Halloween while hiding

For those like Ray who don't watch drivel on the telly, my original poem from two years ago had the word 'jungle' instead of 'castle'. If you still don't get it you should get out more...or perhaps stay in.

Brian, I don't even know what the Castle is, so i'm afraid for that reason i'm out. Slip something in the coffee I suggest.

I am jealous of all those celebrities
They get a stay in the castle for free
No social distancing rules apply
Watching them hug is strange to see

They have no COVID worries or concerns
No need for rules like hands face space
Receive a plentiful supply of rice and beans
No shopping in masks covering their face

Last night they had a party in the pub
A night out together and having a blast
I miss hugs and nights out with my friends
I’m not a celebrity but get me in there fast

Not in our household, my husband is in charge of the remote! I’m quite jealous of those celebrities. No social distancing and a party in the pub.

It's the same the world over mate.

At least we know our place, Brian.
