Blow up Sal

By 4th May 2010December 9th, 2019No Comments

In this, my far-off land of forgotten dreams

You came, and you went away too fast it seems

Just like, the scalding hot tempest’s burning smoke

Your fire was out when I suddenly awoke.

I stroked the warm embers of sheer delight

But alas! They would not even come alight

I took my wand, to create a magic spell

T’was like pouring coins down a wishing well.

I coaxed, and then murmered sweet words of love

I sent a solemn prayer to the Gods above

Yet not a flicker! Nor even a little spark

Like a blind man walking through a barren park.

I am so annoyed with this lack of pleasure,

For when we met, I thought I’d found a treasure

So I shall return you to the shopping Mall

You rotten blow-up doll that I called Sal…
