Not My Favourite Things

Jem Tovey

Auctions on eBay that don’t find a buyer,
Finding a nail in a nearly new tyre,
Those Facebook statuses with the word “blessed”,
These are some things that I mildly detest.

Wind on the beach making sandwiches gritty,
Watching United get beaten by City,
Replacement bus services making me late,
These are the things that I can’t help but hate.

Watching an England team managed by Keegan,
Sharing a lift with a flatulent vegan,
Newspaper photos of Michael Gove,
These are the things that I quite frankly loathe.

When the sun’s out and there’s no doubt,
Summer’s here to stay,
I simply remember some un-favourite things
And then I don’t feel, so great.
