Wake Up Brian. It's 7am

Wake Up Brian, It's 7am


I post a poem quite regularly

In fact near one a day

I find it helps me pass the time

Pass the time away


But WOL'ers, when I post it

It turns up on the screen

Alarm-clocks Brian “Wake up” it says

There's things that I want seen


Despite him getting old, worn-out

He jumps at chance to show

He can't let us Down Unders

Taking front-stage bow


Yep, he's up and dressed now

He won't get 'way with this

Just because he's upside down

Thinks he can take the piss?


Shaking his head to clear the dreams

(I've been awake all day)

Despite my getting headstart here

I wait what Brian will say?

When Saturday comes around MC
I have all day to write
My rhymic poem real leisure-like
And give it Aussie bite ?

Brian - clever. I admit to being a bit muddled and behind at times

MC - the Aussies know that we Brits are ahead of our time.

Which takes me to a question I have about the Saturday theme blogs.
When it's five past midnight here in the UK
On each and every Saturday
What time (and day?) is it, I wonder,
With our poets hard at work down under?

My sleep pattern's a bit all over the place these days. Sometimes I wake up before I've even gone to bed! Take today for example...this is the earliest I've ever been late.

Brian he likes to be on top
When giving Brian-like quips
I'm sure he want's to do this
And still maintain his grip

He'll need to think and put his
UK neurons in action
Coz I have had all day to put
My Aussie ones in traction ?

Ha Ha

Don you have made my day.

This is super mate.

Not even dressed yet, turned on, ( the lap top silly) and got my daily fix.
Can't wait to see Brain's reply, Time for my Weetabix.
