Fandango’s Challenge. Today, our favourite beverage. There can be only one.
I normally take part in Fandango’s Provocative Question on Wednesdays, but frankly, there is not a cat in hell’s chance that I will come up with anything even vaguely coherent today.
My head was turned, however, by his Dog Days of August prompt today (#26) where he asks us for our favourite quotation. That one is easy.
Mine is political – my favorites always are because I think human beings can do a much better job. It is from the UK Labour (left) politician Tony Benn (1925-2014). I was lucky enough to meet him and to have chatted with him. I’ve posted this before, so forgive me if I post it again.
If we can find the money to kill people, we can find the money to help people.
Unique combination tonight, time plus motivation. So I thought I’d have a stab at today’s FDDA challenge, hate. I’ve been having some fun composing a few poems again recently, so I hope this raises a smile. Some of these are true, others just made me smile. I’ll let you decide which are which.
Whether they're short or whether they're long, One thing's for certain, I hate Country songs. Just a few words to describe it, absolute crap. You can be left in no doubt that I'm talkin' 'bout rap. Another I saw not much point in grunge, If it comes on, I fill up my ears with sponge. I never was too much into rock, The most I can say is it just puts me in shock I don't mind some jazz in the late afternoon, But why the **** can't they just stick to the tune? I really quite partial to good bits of punk Another I like is is Seventies funk. When we talk about reggae, we're on the same line, A good reggae band nothing short of sublime. I can't let this rhyme go without having my say, 'Bout disco, soul music, and of course Marvin Gaye.
