The Big Spot

I’ve got a big spot on the top of my head

It came from nowhere and just grew and grew

I’m not happy about it

But I might as well admit

I’ve got a big spot on the top of my head.


The next day that big spot was still there

I gave it a squeeze and some gunk came out

I slapped on some cream then I slapped on some more

I’ve still got a big spot on my head

But now it’s quite sore.


The day after I reckoned that spot had gone

Although the whole spot business seemed pretty queer

Anyway, I walked down to the corner shop

I got myself a sandwich and a can of beer


I tried to chat up the girl on the counter

But guess what she said

‘Do you know you’ve got a big spot

On the top of your head?’

Thanks Stephen
I'm not one for humour in poetry but it helped me deal with that spot, it was really sore!

I once had one right in the middle of my forehead... I was referred to as Cyclops Steve for a while...🙄
Good one! 😆
