Mair than Juist a Bad Poet

A blog post by Albert Semple

I understand writing poems that rhyme is unfashionable, but here are a list of other unfashionable things I am or do as well.

Ye say Ah'm bad at poyums
Cos Ah ayeweys make them rhyme,
Ah've mony ither talents
That Ah cannae dae sae fine:
Ah'm rubbish at the dancin;
An Ah'm nasal when Ah speak;
Ah'm no that guid at hygiene;
An mah table manners reek;
Ah'm bad at drivin motors;
An Ah cannae chinge a wheel;
An Mrs Semple telt me
That Ah'm shite in bed as weel.
So dinnae just dismiss me,
Cos my poyums urnae braw.
Ah'm no juist bad at rhyme,
Ah'm bad at ither hings an aw.
