these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.”

Bloody Men - Wendy Cope

I made this: Avid Reader at 9:39 am
Bloody Men



Bloody men are like bloody buses —
You wait for about a year
And as soon as one approaches your stop
Two or three others appear.

You look at them flashing their indicators,

Offering you a ride.
You’re trying to read the destinations,
You haven’t much time to decide.


If you make a mistake, there is no turning back.
Jump off, and you’ll stand there and gaze
While the cars and the taxis and lorries go by
And the minutes, the hours, the days.
