Listen

I should know by now

after all these years

of saying the right things

to the wrong people

Drowning in crocodile tears

 

I try them for size

Maybe a good fit

not quite composite

but nevertheless I’ll memorise

what I think they want to hear

 

It’s no laughing matter

standing here, alone

bearing your soul

 

Remember to enunciate

so they’ll appreciate

the time it took

to get their attention

a mention in dispatches

Passing comment at football matches

 

He’s all right he is
