Our Melanie bought me a footstool.

So pleased with it I am.

But now Benji seems to think it’s his,

And doesn’t give a damn.


So it seems the best solution

Is to share it as best we can,

My poor bandaged, bunion-less foot

And my little hairy man.



One for fun!

P.S.  Sorry Banksy, this must be as corny as that other one!!

Thank you Dave, Stef and Rachael. :)

Yes Isobel, Benji is our little terrier, or the hairy man in this poem. Thank you for comment,glad you like it. Funnily enough, in my case I started out with comic verse, and the serious stuff was branching out for me!

Is Benji the hairy man?

I love the humour in this Lynn - branching out from serious stuff is wonderful but so hard to do sometimes. We are such a miserable bunch of bastards by nature...
