The professional couple
Makes me think that ...
A dark man with an immaculately tailored beard
Somehow covered in smears
From the brains coming out of his ears
A petite blonde
Queen of style and all that
Hair done in a neat french plait
Jet setters across the globe
New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, New York, Utah, Washington, Georgia, Massachusetts,
Maybe even a fall to Idaho
Glimpses of a grand mosque through the tradesmen's door
A sumptuous dinner, grim company sales (office
Back home; equipped with Chloe Madeley's good cookbook
Counting calories they set to wok
To kill those evil caffeine-hungry microbes that threaten to put on the piles
As their competing steps count up the miles
Escaping the heat of England as the first snow arrives
For the cool of Rio Di Janeiro
A commute so short can't be undone and
We'll be there for carnival
Large brown eyes akin a certain bear's (and
Just like his mum)
We are alive
