Abused, confused, misused
Accused, defused – should have been used.
Unpaid, mislaid, betrayed
Unplayed, delayed – sometimes just afraid.
Depressed, unblessed, oppressed
Unpressed, redressed – never yet successed.
Delayed, death-rayed, near slayed
Non-upgrade, Mondayed – can’t remember what I sayed.
Sad, bad, no-good lad
Had, glad – it’s just a fad.
Lied, tied, untried
Fried, pride – fighting on whose side?
This is a blast from the past. A colleague of mine sent me this school magazine through from 1985. The poetry week was organised by my great friend Tony Marsh. I miss you mate! I used to contribute!
