Coldplay & Risotto

I thought about it

you know

Making up a great poem

that rhymed

but then I just didn’t

have the time.


So I wrote this


you know

like Coldplay

and risotto

Not that hard

but easy to get it wrong.


Your work is no good Madeliine

Be gone from here

for I fear

you are substandard.


So Madeline the city pig

left the city

and joined the other animals.


It doesn’t really matter

how or what poetry

or words

you read to a 4 year old

who’s nearly asleep.
