Poetry by Jeff Green


It’s not much to ask

All I ever wanted
Was a little bit of love
And a few strokes of good fortune
Raining from the skies above

It’s not that much to ask you know
For a chap as nice as I
To live his life in perfect peace
And succeed with every try

Some money in the bank as well
Wouldn’t hurt a bit
And living to a ripe old age
While staying very fit

A talent for a lot of games
A wicked sense of fun
A lot of luck with lots of dames
And the love of every one

Could I add some charming children
And a stunner of a wife
And my boots I will have filled them
Through a full and happy life
