When I Said to a Girl Called Lou

When I said to a girl called Lou,
“Have you seen my shoe?”,
She said, “after a night of great passion
It is the new fashion,
For a girl to retain a gentleman’s shoe!”.

Waves and Ripples

Great waves
Turn to graves.
Although one may find
A ripple is left behind.

But I should not say
That waves go away
Lest I offend
Those who would pretend
That they, forever, stay.

The Poet and the Prostitute (dedicated to Ernest Christopher Dowson)

Some girls say
“No way”,
(And mean what they say).
But others may,
(For pay)
Remain, for a time,
And forever be,
That anonymous she,
Immortalised in rhyme.

When I Said To Moriah

When I said to Moriah,
“Have you seen the squire?”,
And she said, “yes, in a haystack,
As I lay flat on my back”,
I said, “that’s enough of that, Moriah!”.

When A Young Man Named Moore

When a young man named Moore
Said, “the poor will always be poor”.
His accountant, who was called Lou,
Said, “I must agree with you,
So lets raise their rents some more!”.
