Nostalgic TV

A blog post by Albert Semple

I've recognised that quite a few of my poems just take awful dad-joke puns and make them rhyme. I've decide to just own it and set up a collection called "Bad Puns" to group them all together for people who like that sort of thing, or people who just like sneering at them.

Here's my latest addition:

Was feeling all nostalgic,
Watching telly yesterday.
Remembering a programme
That we watched back in the day.
Had Sarah Michelle Geller,
With support from Tony Head.
My DVDs were missing:
Thought I'd stream the show instead.
The programme wouldn't play —
I tried on Netflix and iPlayer.
I blame it on my broadband,
It was Buff'ring the Vampire Slayer.
