Treasure Island

Colin Coplin

(Australia)

She Likes The Finer Things


Some like the theatre, some like bars, some like late dinners, some fancy cars
Some like to travel, see the world first class
Some just enjoy, what they got in their hearts
But she likes the finer things
And she likes to laugh
I guess that's why she's got me in her grasp

Some like adventure, some simply the truth
Some like to make love, in a parliament phone booth
Some follow leaders, with charisma and class
But she likes the finer things
And she likes to laugh
I guess that's why she's got me in her grasp

She likes the free wind in her hair, clean country air
Conversation with friends
Yes she likes the finer things
I guess that's why she has me in her grasp

Some like security, of fashion and fame
Some like zuconias, and what's in a name
Some like security, of the eternal flame
But she likes the finer things
And she likes to laugh
I guess that's why she's got me in her grasp

She likes the free wind in her hair, clean country air
Conversation with friends
Yes she likes the finer things
I guess that's why she has me in her grasp

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Vaughan

They are all gone into the world of light!
And I alone sit ling'ring here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
