Count Me In! - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

7 blue buttons
on the front of your frock.

You've unloosened
the top two.

If you release only one more
.. I...don't...know what...I'll do!

(Oh yes I do!)

I'll let loose every one
& stop

this obsessive button counting!

Count instead

(what ever comes to hand)

& so on &
so on

etc., etc., etc...

    You make loving so much fun! Thank you for this ridiclously sublime meditation on the opening(or not) of buttons and revealing what guys are thinking when we are thinking they are only looking at our nice new frocks. Wot a shock! So they think about so on and so on and etc. etc. etc. I love all the unsaid/said bit and the counting of ahem...other things. Almost made me wee with laughter. Great fun and yourself having it as the old Orish saying has it!

    love Dee Dee
