Being Bad: A Good Friday Poem

Inspired by an unholy article …


Being good on a Friday entails:

stifling a yawn;

washing up the dishes;

mowing a parent’s lawn;

reading an article called ‘I used to be a lesbian’ in a holy magazine;

and deciding to be tee-total bore!


Being bad on a Friday entails:

yawning with mouth wide open;

washing up the dishes in murky water;

forgetting to mow a parent’s lawn;

accidentally depositing said article in a recycling bin;

writing a response to the said article with the title ‘You used to be a person I would like to have known, but now you are a bigot!’;

and slinking off to the pub for a Friday evening tipple!


Today, on Good Friday, I am bad!

Freelance writer and descendant of the cave dweller and outlaw, Humphrey Kynaston. Banished from Shropshire for my eccentricity, I have made my home in Suffolk. I write poetry, short stories, travel journals, comedy gig reviews and non-fiction articles. My wish is to write my way back into the heart of my birth land. All writing commissions (and free holidays in Shropshire!) considered.
