I WANT ONE!

By special request -
I have reproduced a poem/ verse/ bit of doggerel I wrote in 1987 entitled "I want a Porsche for Christmas."
I dressed up in a Mrs Mop outfit - full apron,slippers, wrinkly stockings and a headscarf tied over rollers - to perform the poem at a Hurst Players Christmas party.
When you read it, please bear in mind that it was written 25 years ago. Christmas gifts have changed since then!
Look on my VERSES page on the right.

  1. Well Liz!

    I did read and enjoy today's blog but don't have a meaningful comment to post.

  2. Great poem. You're right about the changing attitudes to presents though - I remember giving and receiving most of the ones mentioned. Soap on a rope... it still exists, you know!
