Changing Colour

Sometimes on a Wednesday 

if I'm not doing very much

I go out on my bicycle

and pretend that I am Dutch


I say that I'm Pieter van Basten

and I know this has to be true

because only just last Wednesday

I was Pieter van Basten too


It's nice to pretend to be someone else

for just the occasional day

It helps relieve the boredom

and keeps the stress at bay


We all hide behind façades

or play someone else's game

behaving like chameleons

we blend in as required

our colours constantly change

Brian - glad to bring a smile to add to your own entertaining blog.
There are varying explanations about JW's nickname but the most
widely held is that it stemmed from having a dog of that name ("Duke") as a constant companion when younger.

Thanks Mark, Becky, Josie and Lisa.

Loved the John Wayne line Mark. Why did they call him The Duke?

Much truth in this observation on how we are "all things to all men",
according to circumstance.
Walking in a certain way caused me so much pain
I soon gave up any idea of calling myself John Wayne! ?
