Doggerel

Tell me...

These are the nights, the ones that work out best. Nerves, confusion, an hour staring at a blank screen, complete fucking torpor. At least I think torpor is the right word? Who cares.

Fuck. Half an hour until the shower, ten more minutes to the bus, fifteen into town and seven to the pub.

Check the shirt, no check shirts, collars up, collars down, slap slap and out that door to God knows what...


...does anyone know what the fuck I'm on about? Answers on a postcard.

Picture postcard or plain, what size, and what's the mailing address?

(I thought it rather brilliant actually---your italics, I mean, not my comment)

Hey Radge,

I would imagine you are steeling your resolve before leaving the house to commit a crime of heinous magnitude.

The smart money is on murder, but if anybody's running a book on this, I'll take some GBH action too.

Radge said...

Susan - Listen to your heart. Therein lies the way of the postcard.

Red - If it is I'm still waiting for the reveal.

AG - Any chance of a comment soon? Is this a political stance?

PRyin - Wish I was you. And I haven't owned a check shirt since 1993. But I want one. And I'd never collar up. And...

...Meadow - Woof and....

...Irish Begrudger - Is consensual midget sodomy a crime?

Is this the intro to your new book, "What the Modern Man Does Before Looking for Ladies to Seduce"?

Radge said...

Hope - Yes. But I need a more concise title.

Elmo said...

I'm guessing by the title it means you're going dogging....but for you, that may be too obvious.

Waiting to witness a masterclass.


Of the Andrei Arshavin type?


Wrong answer?!?

Holemaster said...

Fupple match?

Radge said...

Elmo - Way too obvious!

NaRocRoc - The less said...

Holemaster - The better.
