Come to WORD!

  • Come to WORD!

    If you’re football, premier league
    beginning to feel a little relieved
    we’ve got a sonnet for that.

    If your girlfriend’s mailed a letter
    and your name’s John, first name, Dearest,
    we’ve got the pentameter.

    If you’re angry, blame the government,
    take a stand, we’ve got the stanzas.

    If your life is feeling fine.
    If your heart is fixed with twine.
    If you’re free on a Thursday night..

    Bring your husband.
    Bring your wife.
    Bring your dog if it’s imaginary,
    there’s a policy on children and animals.
    Come bearing gifts of iambic and verse
    Come if you love, come if you yearn
    Come if you hate it, especially you
    Roses are red, we’ve got the best tunes
    Come on your own
    Come as you are.
    You bring the words.
    We’ll drop the mic.
