Information

 

At what height does a pony become a horse? Fifteen hands.

This is known in many lands.

The nineteen forties was the time of big bands.

Straight laced, straight faced.

A fact is a lie and a half.

Don’t laugh.

Watch

Watch me growing old before your very eyes.

By accident I might say something very wise.

Pam Ayres

Has Pam Ayres improved with age, I did not like her on the page.

I thought she was too twee for me, you see.

But now at last her flowering comes, at school was she good at sums?

She’s funny, humorous, you know, she puts on a really good show.

Yes, I do enjoy her work, she makes out her husband is a berk.

She laughs at life, she laughs at age.

I will read her on the page.

She’s great on stage.

Boy Band

I am a boy band of one, God’s misbegotten son.

Many a man rocks another man’s cradle as long as he is able.

DNA has a lot to say.

Has nature or nurture made me what I am, do I give a damn?

Boy bands grow up, its time to shut up.

Explainer

I think what this poem means is I don’t know.

Should I explain before I go?

You have a brain you know.

I told you so.
