Family - Poem by Andrew Fincham

My uncle David used to say
Without the option.
'He wants seven days
without the option.'
And 'Lemon'
Both in a most endearing way.

My mother said (and others too)
'Champagne ideas on Beer money'
Pa thought the secret's liking what you do.

My Gran would claim that it was
'Better than being at the Pictures'.

My father told the neighbours he
Had got four lads.
My sister smiles
Beautifully.
