Gunner Harris


Happy mother’s day mother!
There are chocolates for you on the shelf
And unlike my uncaring brother
I won’t eat your choccies myself

I was gunner buy tickets to Paris
But the tour office said I was short
They said bugger off now young Harris
Too young to buy things of this sort

I was gunner get up extra early
To give you your brecky in bed
But I had a late night with Liz Hurley
Or at least with her pictures instead

I was gunner go out and buy roses
And really surprise you this once
But what if me mates all supposes
That I aint nothing more than a ponce

I was gunner take you to a movie
With a seat at the front and popcorn
But I don’t think you’d find it that groovy
The films that I watch are all porn

I was gunner take you out to dinner
A rich lavish banquet – my treat
But it wouldn’t impress Michael Winner
The chip shop not far from our street

But I’m still really gunner impress yer
Providing there isn’t a theft
There’s the choccies I put on your dresser
If you lucky, I think there’s one left

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
