Little lambs

They think you’re old
and a bit ‘mutton’
but they’re wrong,
I’m as sound as a pound and
as bright as any button in
the button box,

and they must think
I’m a glutton for
punishment
but
because I soak it all in
it means
there’s more to dish out
when the time is right.

My Friday night’s for scheming
for
screaming at the stars
not for pissing it up
against the walls behind
the West End bars.

bet they don’t know that
about me.
