Brian’s Birthday

Barry Stebbings, who is a member of the Wokingham Library Poetry Group has written this poem for our readers.

 

Brian’s Birthday

 

Tomorrow is Brian’s birthday,

Who will his mum invite to play?

Brian hopes that Mick will come

But that depends on Michael’s mum.

Kate always brings nice toys

But never, ever plays with boys.

Or Margaret with her freckled face,

Not a hair out of place,

Bringing presents with expensive trappings,

Bows and kisses and silver wrappings.

Tessa with her bright red hair

Only seems to stand and stair,

Or Richard who’s extremely rude,

Talks whilst he chews his food.

William, who lives next door to Mick,

Eats and eats until he’s sick.

Thomas could come and stay the night

But Tom and Richard always fight.

Last year little Matthew came,

Bringing chocolates and a game

But in a temper beat up Mick,

Michael’s mum came round quick,

“You won’t be coming here again,”

She said, through screams of rage and pain.

Tomorrow is Brian’s birthday,

Who will his mum invite to play.
