The Knocking Shop 2 - Poem by John Churchill

The Knocking shop now has a sign
posted on the door,
it says half price every Wednesday
from ten o'clock till four.

Come in and try our sauna
big Berther is in charge,
she can deal with anyone
from small to extra large.

Next we have the vouyers room
with screens from wall to wall,
and girls dressed up as French maids
at your beck and call.

The 'Lay Down and Think of England' room
is for our older clientel,
run by Dainty Daisy
Who's getting on as well (she's almost 69) .

Down stairs we have the Dungeon
with chains and locks and grips,
where leather cladded Laura
likes to flick her whips.

So remember every Wednesday
when the shops close for half day -
don't walk past the Knocking shop
come in and have a play.

(2005)

    The humor in this poem is gentle, sounding like a write about any neighborhood shop - and that is its strength, really! The lines about Dainty Daisy are veryvery amusing. Thanks for the smiles and laughs! : ] (Report) Reply
