Donations are essential to keep Write Out Loud going

(Played appallingly on my home-made 3-string cigar box guitar)


Don’t donate blood anymore

Did it 50 times before

Now they’ve shown me to the door

Once this cut me to the core

Don’t donate blood anymore.


No more pin-holes in my arm

No more bruising, no more harm

No more causes for alarm

Not a quaver nor a qualm

This has worked out like a charm.


Yes, I’m happy with this snub

I don’t bleat and I don’t blub

I’m not bothered – here’s the rub

I still go there for the grub

Chocolate Penguin or a Club.


See?  I’ve evened up the score

For those years of grief and gore

I’m content these days to gnaw

On their biscuits.  Cynic?  Sure!

I’m a Blood Transfusion Whore.

Don’t donate blood any more.

Not Caramac I’m afraid, Uilleam. Club biscuits, yes. Although I believe you can’t get the full spectrum of these (Orange, Mint, Fruit and Plain) these days. Plain and Fruit have passed to that great biscuit muncher in the sky.
And thanks for the Likes, Stephen A, Stephen G, Holden and John.

Not one of my 5-a-day, Graham. And I have the slow, steady pulse of a Sulzer pump.
