Ode to the Script Writers (unpublished)

They write their little stories

In straight prose or in verse

They comment on life’s ups and downs

In this parallel universe.


They email them to you promptly

Just before you go on air

To provide you with a script to read

With panache and perhaps some flair.

The tactics they resort to

To get their emails read

Would impress an Army General

Should he care to take their lead


Some subtle innuendo

And a suggestive story plot

Are the tools of these great script writers

Whether they make sense or not!


Often strangely baffling

Of that there is no doubt

Sometimes we’re all left thinking

“What’s it all about?”


Their nom de plumes are chosen

To make you laugh out loud

In the hope you’ll read their efforts

To the expectant Toggy crowd
