Arnold and his bird

(Looking at Arnold Finney's wedding)


Where do these sods come from

with their sad commitment

in tiny rooms

Like science fiction characters

or things to come

They traipse

about in fantastic garb

unreal as their curious minds

Difficult to take seriously

are they from another planet

Such dullards - giving - taking

I do thee possess only enlivened

by some legal niceties

like plight and troth

or must of crinkled parchment

I wonder where they

keep their motor-bikes

Something should be done
