I Really Wish You Were Here, Instead Of Me

 

Here I am just soaking in the brine

I really wish I was having a good time

It would be really nice if someone else was here

If only I had won a totally different tier

 

I am at this wonderful summer resort

All because one day I bought a torte

The prize was a holiday in the midst of winter

All I’m hoping is this isn’t going to make me bitter

 

I better go as I’m running out of space

I long to soon be back in an aeroplane’s carapace

By the time I get home I’ll be full of joy

but for now I should let go of this freezing buoy

This was written for Chelsea Owen’s Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest #28. This weeks was we had to write a holiday poem that was sent on a postcard to a loved one. Obviously the “poet” here had reasonably small writing.

 

And for some shit icing on the cake here is another one I wrote which I never got round to posting. It was a poem about an engineering fail:

 

Fail

 

This entire project was always quite cursed

There’s a crack in the dam it’s gonna burst!

As engineers go, I’m definitely the worst

They may as well have hired Fred Durst

 

So I’m off with my suitcase full of money

Off to the fabled land of milk and honey

In a way you could say it’s almost funny

Now I’m off to a place that’s quiet and sunny.

Please buy me a coffee! 🙂
