Apropos Nothing At All Except That It Made One Smile

A happier cabbage you never did see,
My vegetable spirits are soaring.
If you're after excitement, steer well clear of me.
I want to go on being boring.

-- Wendy Cope

(Those who haven't yet done so are strongly urged to read Ms Cope's marvellous take on The Waste Land.)

  • Wendy Cope always makes me smile. Here's one I like.

    The day he moved out was terrible-
    That evening she went through hell.
    His absence wasn't a problem
    But the corkscrew had gone as well.
