Occasionally I postulate,

Then I simply procrastinate.

Writing to me comes hard,.

I've never considered myself as a bard.


More in this world as a bit of a twit,

Someone who's life doesn't quite fit.

I've been told, All my life's a stage,

I don't need to panic:

I do hope the stage wasn't built,

By the man who built the Titanic.

You have quite a way with words, sir. Are you a fan of Larkin? Your poem echo his dry wit.

So shall this stage not collapse,
the builder's licence has not lapsed
