Celebrate the Rain

I was whinging in the rain, once I remember well It was cold and grey and to the bone I could tell Memories of summer had faded as vapour Lost in damp denim and golfing umbrellas “You should be thankful”, said she, amidst the clatter Of rain on tarp and pitter patter “‘Tis a signContinue reading “Celebrate the Rain”

But I remember at the time thinking, “wow…I’m really 30?”. It felt landmarkesque. That’s not even a word. It is now. The seventeenth verseContinue reading “30-year old Brothers”

“Do You Trust Me?”

When David Brent repeatedly asked the Swindon lot, ‘do you trust me?’, we laugh because of course they didn’t! Brent is the last person in the world that you would find yourself trusting. The Swindon crew’s resounding silence tells the story:¬† ‘No, we do not trust you” – even when Brent makes them say thatContinue reading ““Do You Trust Me?””
