Every Man To His Taste - Poem by Fred Babbin

Some people like adventure-
They play at Erroll Flynn.
I have a different nature-
I don’t have that little gene.
I like a noisy kitchen, and
a bed that’s nice and clean,
and showers when I need them,
and a quiet planned routine.
Some say “it sounds so boring”,
but I would really disagree,
a very firm believer In
“chacun a son gout” I be.
(That isn’t proper English, but
the French would say “oui oui”)

    I think the message gets a little lost toward to middle of this one, perhaps the french? (Report)Reply
