Obviously Orange

posted in: Poems UoL | 0

“George, George where have you been?”
This is how it always starts.
Rushed footsteps, bubbling giggles and then the outburst of “I’ve missed you!”
After that no one can get a word in edgeways,
For us the whole family dinner is a daze.
Reciprocal radiation, “you know you’re my favourite” I said
Because you’re so obviously orange and I’m so obviously red.
