to wish you a Happy New Year
(click on any photo for more detail)
The New Zealand New Year Honours list came out today – and I couldn’t resist this…
The New Year’s honours list is out
and much to my surprise
I didn’t get a mention
although I’m one who tries.
I hear Jane Campion’s a Dame
and all she does is write
I’ve written heaps of poetry
so where’s my gong tonight.
Dave Fagan has been made a Sir
for shearing wool off sheep
Well, Rod is good at weed-eating
It’s really rather steep.
Of course I fancy Ritchie
who’s also scored a hit.
But what about my hockey game?
I always did my bit.
I think I’ll go outside and sulk
and ponder on my fate.
I guess the biggest problem is
I left my run too late…

apologies to those mentioned…
on the third day of Christmas
sparrows rattling the leaves
along the driveway
somewhere a skylark, singing
and Martin Guptill just hit another six
a drowsy bell-bird
sounding like a hangover
the dog sprawls in the shade
and a lazy bee idles
in the lavender
