Do you remember a grin, Miranda?

12 Feb

Do you remember a grin

Miranda?

Do you remember a grin?

And the knowing and the showing

Of the joke (easy going)

And the aside like a guide to where the punchlines reside

And the wink that lasted for an hour?

And the slips and the trips and the pratfalling quips

(like a loveable clumsy panda)?

Do you remember a grin, Miranda?

Do you remember a grin?

 

And the slips and the trips and the pratfalling quips

Which were only kind of funny

But which were always easy money

And your mother at the door yet again?

And the shop mishap

In the lap

Of the chap with the beard, kind of weird

How this girl he’s after

Is dafter than laughter

Happy ever after?

Crashing and then flashing him your knickers –

Here’s the vicar!

And the sing-song thing at the end.

Do you remember a grin

Miranda?

Do you remember a grin?

 

No more;

Miranda,

No more.

How the critics abhor

And audience’s starting to snore.

The plots

Are balls and the falls in your smalls

Got thin

But still you can mug to the camera

Until they fill

Your

(as I like to call it)

Slot.

    How clever are you?

    You rhymed ‘after’ with ‘after’ up there. Albeit with a ‘laughter’ in the middle. I can tolerate things like that. No I can’t. Bloody Lenny Henry and his “done in”… “Premier Inn” nonsense. GOD.
