Bookmakers

Bet that wasn’t on the agenda
and
now she’s got to tend her
letter of resignation.

It’s not really cricket
but
they don’t have the balls

ten to one they’ll bail out
when the ice queen falls.

who’s a naughty boy then?
Jeremy,
you worry me
sneaking in like that.

I’d like to think that that was that,
but past experience shows
even when they’ve lost the plot
not one of themĀ bastards goes.

I tried to delete the expletive
but predictive text knows all
which has shown to me
to let things be
and it
will be alright.
