A Four Letter Word This isn't a word I use much in life If I do, I'm in trouble Most of all with my wife. According to her It's belittling and cheap I admit, among men We use it a heap. It's a four letter word That starts with a 'C' Women don't like it Demeans them you see. The debate rages on It is used all the time But if I dare to say it My life's not worth a dime. So, you know how it starts But those other three I won't spell it out But it ends with a 'T.' And women don't like it But men clearly do For this four letter word I have one final clue.

Shorts Downtown in Burnley the people wear shorts Perhaps it's a Lancashire thing Baring knees at the first sign of Summer And airing them, through until Spring. Calves that are shapely, knees that are knobbly Legs that could win the Gold Cup Braving arctic conditions, blowing a hooley These things should be kept covered up. In cold or in rain, folk put on their coats Whilst waiting for sunnier skies But even in wellies, they're still wearing shorts Must be something they put in their pies.

Black lives matter Black lives matter, our latest refrain Praying this time, the phrase will remain Until at last our mindset's been changed Living in peace, no culture estranged. Look at the States, so many have died For trivial stuff, police homicide? The many campaigns, like 'I can't breathe' 'Sandie speaks' and 'Taking the knee.' Black lives matter, but if you adjoint White lives, all lives, you're missing the point Mikey Holding, the sports commentator Eruditely explained what the campaign's for. Hundreds of years racial exclusion Frustration breeds, blacks need inclusion No one's born bad, from parents our views Neighbours and teachers, the six o'clock news. What we need then, good education Learn to be friends, no segregation 'Black lives matter,' really, I get it Let's make changes, let's not forget it.
My Hat Collection Picking hats for my collection My choice has been meticulous I only wear them one at once Or I would look ridiculous. I'll start of with my baseball caps I've collected five of these Two were from sunny Australia Where shade can hit forty degrees. There's a cap from Canada's Bamf Embroidered with proud Maple Leaf Whilst one from our amis in France Has the Eiffel Tower motif. My golfing favourite was purchased At the British Open event Where Darren Clarke beat all the others In sunshine, at Sandwich, in Kent. So cheap is an old knotted hanky It's one that I almost forgot The sun can not get at my head If it's cloudy, I fill it with snot. A real Aussie bush hat from Perth Is just the sartorial ticket And a foldable one from Tasmania Perfect for watching the cricket. My fedora from M and S I sport with an elegant style And wearing my chequered flat cap I look like the Duke of Argyle. In winter the ear flaps come down When cold snow and hail starts to fall But my scary old balaclava I find it the warmest of all.
Friends Simon was famous on Facebook Had hundreds of friends in his life Yet no one he actually spoke to No buddies, no girlfriend, no wife. His success was repeated on Twitter One million followers plus But he came to a violent ending Knocked down by the number nine bus.

Though no one showed up, not a sausage To see Simon the Superstar off In reality, he was as popular As a man with a bad Covid cough. So, if you are an internet wizard With a wit that's as sharp as a knife Don't forget to engage with real people Get up and get out, get a life.
Cheers The dozens of words and expressions To describe what's a drunken condition Makes me realise, being out of your tree Is a time honoured human condition. Drunk as a soldier, drunk as a sailor Drunk as a Lord, drunk as a skunk Drunk as a fiddler, drunk as a fart Drunk as an owl, just plain drunk. Intoxicated, inebriated Bombed, bladdered, pissed Smashed up, sewed up, tanked up Flushed, tiddly, Brahms and Liszt. Crapulous, maudlin Out of it, befuddled Raddled, addled, primed, screwed Happy, merry, muddled. Boozed, tight, tipsy Obfuscated, fuzzy Three sheets to the wind Gaga, giggly, muzzy. Search a synonym for sober though The well is almost dry A boring state to be in So, "Cheers. Mud in your eye."

Mates Two right good mates Meet up in a pub They have a great time And eat lots of grub. They drink loads of beer Then, needing a wee They follow each other It's normal, you see. One says to the other "This trough's a bit high." "Mines longer," he said "I'll give it a try." Then he looks across A girl's washing her hands It's a sink, not a trough Fast, he understands. They've gone in the ladies Instead of the gents The lass does not laugh Pays no complements. Both so embarrassed The two stop mid-pee Then zip up their trousers And giggling, they flee.
The Restaurant "My sirloin is tough." "This wine's a bit rough." "It's busy, I know But service is slow." "My soup's almost cold." "This bread's five days old." "Toilets are dirty."

Kids I like kids, honestly I went to school with some But I couldn't eat a full one I'd get a poorly tum.
Alcohol Alcohol and me Now that's a complex one Makes me do some stupid things But I've had a lot of fun. The life and soul of parties Singing karaoke Remembering all the gags That's me, Mr Jokey. I've woken in some states Nowhere near my best I've been sick on the streets And woken fully dressed. Things I am ashamed of Which, sober wouldn't do But drink gave me the courage To whisper,"I love you." And you are everything So tell me, in the end Is drink one of my demons Or a very fickle friend.
