Ccccc, not Ovid the Roman


We shall all have one big get-together
weather permitting,
the men can play cricket
and the ladies
can carry on with their knitting.

There’ll be a quiz
boys pitting their wits against the girls
and when the girls win
which is a foregone conclusion
there’ll be utter confusion.

Tickets are one pound apiece
with fifty percent going to
pay off the police
for turning a blind eye.
