A Wee Bit Cheer.
« on: Nov 18, 2020, 02:07:00 PM »
PAM AYRES – Poem about the coronavirus.
I’m normally a social girl
I love to meet my mates
But lately with the virus here
we can’t go out the gates.

You see, we are the ‘oldies’ now
We need to stay inside
If they haven’t seen us for a while
They’ll think we’ve upped and died.

They’ll never know the things we did
Before we got this old
There wasn’t any FaceBook
So not everything was told.

We may seem sweet old ladies
Who would never be uncouth,
But we grew up in the 60s
If you only knew the truth!

There was sex and drugs and rock ‘n roll
The pill and miniskirts
We smoked, we drank, we partied
And were quite outrageous flirts.

Then we settled down, got married
And turned into someone’s mum,
Somebody’s wife, then nana,
Who on earth did we become?

We didn’t mind the change of pace
Because our lives were full
But to bury us before we’re dead
Is like red rag to a bull!

So here you find me stuck inside
For 4 weeks, maybe more
I finally found myself again
Then I had to close the door!

It didn’t really bother me
I’d while away the hour
I’d bake for all the family
But I’ve got no flaming flour!

Now Netflix is just wonderful
I like a gutsy thriller
I’m swooning over Idris
Or some random sexy killer.

At least I’ve got a stash of booze
For when I’m being idle
There’s wine and whisky, even gin
If I’m feeling suicidal!

So, let’s all drink to lockdown
To recovery and health
And hope this awful virus
Doesn’t decimate our wealth.

We’ll all get through the crisis
And be back to join or mates
Just hoping I’m not far too wide
To fit through the flaming gates!

 ;D ;D ;D

It only seems like yesterday that she was on Opportunity Knocks.
Make every day count, each day is precious.

"There is nothing more frightful than the ignorant in action".

Apart from the gullible in action.

Pam Ayes is great, if I feel the need for a chuckle I play a few of her poems. ,
" The three potatoes " always gives me the biggest laugh. its just the way she recites it.

Great Coronavirus poem I love Pam Ayres.   I like these as well

They should have asked my Husband

I wish I'd looked after my teeth

Sorry I don't know how to put a link on with this tablet.

I loved the ‘teeth’ poem
The older I get, the better I was!

That poem just about sums it up at the moment Raven.  Pam Ayres always makes me smile, as sparky said, its also how she recites her poems.  😀
