Six sonnets sail the seas
A rondeau rows the ocean
The limerick rarely sees
Such poetry in motion.

The histr'y exam were a tester
By being discrete
They managed to cheat
Encouraged, cos teacher Ann ses ter.

Long John Baldry

Dauphy and I are always happy to do requests. Our friend John Malone in Australia asked if we would pen a verse or two about Long John Baldry, and we are pleased to oblige. John Malone has a great website, well worth a visit if you haven’t already. Here is a link:

Long John Baldry was an English-Canadian blues singer who was the front man for many bands involving famous singers such as Rod Stewart and Elton John. He reached number one in the UK in 1967 with Let the heartaches begin and a duet with Kathi McDonald, You’ve lost that lovin’ feelin’, reached number two in Australia in 1980. He died in Canada in 2005.

Long John Baldry

Let the heartaches begin
Long, his talents have flown
He played for The Beatles
And sang with The Stones.

Christened John Willy
We need not harp on
No need of a wordsmith
To make this Long John.
