THE SMILE POEMS #47 - IN THE BRINY, VALENTINY SEA

I have a portfolio of features, reviews, poetry and short fiction published in all sorts of places - Belfast Telegraph, Tribune, Ireland's Own, Dalhousie Review, Fairlight Books, Reader's Digest, Reality, Lapwing Poetry, Ink, Sweat & Tears, Spillwords, Dear Reader, Amethyst Review, Black Bough, to name a selection.  Oh, and the odd BBC radio contribution. I wrote books on retailing, on dealing with job losses and a biography of film star Stephen Boyd.


This is a series of (hopefully) funny poems from hundreds I've written over the years (inspired by the likes of Spike Milligan and Roger McGough) to provoke a smile in these odd times.

IN THE BRINY, VALENTINY SEA

 

Even underneath the sea,

Creatures love to play

And indulge in a little wooing

On St Valentine’s Day. 

 

I think I’ve got this right,

As far as I understand,

An octopus’s favourite song

Is “I want to hold your 

Hand, hand, hand, hand, 

Hand, hand, hand, hand.
