Tv Star.......Not Me - Poem by John Churchill

I thought I had the 'X-Factor'
but my voice just hurt my ears
I turned to 'Ballroom Dancing'
but that just lead to tears
Tried my luck on game shows
but had no time to think
as I was told by vulgar Ann
'You Are The Weakest Link'
So telly's not for me
but that's not a major blow
I'm sure that someone with my looks
would suit the radio

(2005)

    Another funny with that 'Sad Sack' quality, John! Sometimes dreams don't quite work out, as you know well. But there are always alternatives. Thanks for this. : ] (Report) Reply
