These two old farts simplistically routine way of low morale busting

Us two coffin dodgers off pittance pension collecting

fully flowered umbrella protected 

against the descending watery onslaught,

dancing, but not in a happy carefree Gene Kelly

purposely foot soaking way,

but in the opposite pavemented pool avoiding way.


Today is a pissed wet through to our market towns skin

moan worthy Monday midday

but easily, agreeably deferred by the preference to warm cafe

the excessively aqueous hours away, until heaven turned its tap off.


Exiting, its all rain-stopped, sun cheer changed

then, to round off this very much mixed bag weather day

head pubwards

to down a health considered few only 

remaining blues washing away beers.


Teatime, we and our reliefs homebound

four and twenty black thoughts no longer baked in our minds pies

all finally binned

and replaced by the more appetising

and very very big spoonfuls of medicinal laughter

fed and so appreciatively ear tasted in the form of

a double-decker Peter Kay DVD sandwich!

I was mentally with you on your enjoyable experience that had me chuckling - thanks.
I love the term "coffin dodger"...and have noted it for suitable use in the future - a long one, I hope!!
