Nuts for Bananas

I can now tell you that the book of poetry is getting closer. It’s shadow hangs over me like a big rubber vulture. I was originally going to get together 99 poems but have since realised that 99 is a really common number in books and cds. For example, 99 Ways to Tie a Banana to your Hat, 99 Foods that Make you Fart, 99 Tunes for Relaxing while you Flick Rubber Bands at Pigeons and 99 Dogs called Roger are all favourite books of mine and would be hard to compete against, so it’s not going to be 99. It might be 98. It might be 97. It might be 54. Who knows? I can promise you one things though: it won’t be 2,739,608. That would be stupid.

Anyway, here’s another poem for you to taste. I hope you enjoy it, don’t eat it all at once.

Nuts for Bananas

I go nuts for bananas,
I go bananas for nuts,
I love them both,
It’s great to hear them,
Gurgling around in my guts.
