The Web Poetry Corner - J D Cully - Ballad No. 7

Ballad No. 7


J D Cully

Watching the athletics
With Jane Hoffen and the dietetics
Would have been a better option on the sly
Throwaway attitudes prevail
When switch-it-off approaches fail
All you get for your troubles is a bitter sny

Cogito ergo miser sum
I'm the ghost of New Year yet to come
I'm a mess of stress and there's Jonah Jinx in the air
I met a bunch of strangers
But they all supported Glasgow Rangers
Please will some fair carry me off to Sussex fair?

The doctor's diagnosis
Was 4.48 psychosis
Drink your corporation coffee and take a paper from the shelf
Annie wasn't getting any
So she went out and she killed Kenny
And as they carted her away I sat and wondered to myself:

Cogito ergo miser sum
There's no flavour left in my gum
I'm the heir of her sorrows and I'm going slightly mad
I'm in the sin bin for five or ten
La, la, la, pancakes again
And I'm REALLY sorry if this sounds a little sad
