My Name Is David

Poem By Alessandra Liverani

My name is David, and I have a fear
Which I'd like to explain to all of you here
It's not complex at all, the epitome of simplicity
To rid myself of it would give me much felicity

Although my fear is simple, not in any way complicated
Do not for a second think it can be overrated
It's killed many people, billions in fact
Ruined their lives, yes it has really done that

I know that you're wondering what could have that power
And I don't want to keep you here, hour after hour
So I won't delay any longer, with more introductions
I won't turn this into a major production

The fear that I have, if you'll just bear with me briefly
Is of not having a cigarette, that's what it is, chiefly
Could not live my life without its magical presence
Which is very strange, since it's really a menace

- In The Garden: : Humour

The air was alpine fresh and the lake surface glistening
Bird song trilled for those who were listening
What a great afternoon, thought Glenn feeling chipper
A perfect moment to start up his new whipper snipper

- Dust: : Humour

The ship in a bottle brought back from Bristol
The vase filled with flowers made of finest crystal
Wedding photographs of children proudly displayed
Souvenirs of wood and iron, some made of green jade

- Item Six, A Bag Of Nothing: : Humour

Next is item six, a bag of nothing, who'll give me an opening price
A bag of nothing sitting on your shelf would look rather nice
Come on give me a bid, oh is that five dollars I hear
But surely I can get more for this perfectly formed sphere

- In The Middle Of Nowhere: : Humour

I live in the middle of nowhere, where nowhere's all around
And in the middle of nowhere, there are many nowhere sounds
Colourful birds in the middle of nowhere screech and squawk and trill
A choir of frogs sing in chorus in the centre of nowheresville

- How To Make A Mountain Out Of A Molehill: : Humour, Inspiration

First you must pick your molehill, now here's a tip
The smaller the better, tinier than the tiniest microchip
From this speck you can conjure mountainous masses
Of soaring peaks dropping into bottomless crevasses

- Lemon Pepper Sauce: : Humour

Lemon pepper sauce has a lemony peppery zing
It's a lemony peppery, peppery lemony saucy kind of thing
Made with lemon zest and peppercorns and garlic that's been pressed
Splash it on your salad so it's tantalisingly, tastefully dressed
