What Most People Think

(Ode to Lee Anderson)

  • guest poem by Patrick Murphy


When I said I hated men dressed in pink

And that women should be tied to the kitchen sink

I wasn’t being a prat, a bigot or fink

I was simply saying what most people think


Mental health sufferers belong in the clink

That’s what our forefathers, bless them, would think

Middle-age Kicks

with apologies to The Undertones

A middle-age dream's so hard to beat
Every time I'm offered a seat
A cinnamon whirl in the neighbourhood
With a glass of wine, it tastes so good

I'm getting older, getting older, right
Get middle-age kicks then an early night
