this poem was raised by badgers

this poem is agnostic – but fingers crossed

this poem contains nuts & gluten

aspartame & martian d.n.a

this poem quite likes marmite

this poem is not your long lost uncle

this poem is friends with the gingers

& topples down statues on their behalf

this poem has sixteen nipples

seventeen elbows & forty four eyebrows

this poem is not a windmill

a harpy or a harpsichord

this poem is neither a witch doctor

a doctor or a witch

this poem claims to be shower proof

but would probably drown

in a cloudburst
