Poem for the Emerging BUs

Phil Daoust was right.

Minchin pretentious rhyme bitchin

With eyeshadow blue

I'd love to read that review

black eyeliner Barbie Doll Hairdo

dogmatic diatribe is such doggy doo

Look at his feet without a shoe.

A boorish bore

a polluted beach

should never preach

you're not a Sandy Shaw

Tim, Tim,Tim, it's such a sin, sin, sin,

you Think you know where it's at?

You, you, you, you,

Well, yes. I really have tried to like his stuff (TM) but, for me, he often seems to take the easy line. Good performer though.

Titus said...

There I was all worn out and washed out and then... laughter, the best medicine (as The Reader's Digest always says). Fantastico! Brilliant last three lines.

Ah, just saw someone else sent the link. I quite like some of Minchin's stuff and some of his tunes are really catchy. I like the raw anger of your pome - heh! Wish I could do that.

When I grow up I want to have the courage to say what I really feel too!
