Seminal simile season

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I’m like a big cuddly bear
coming out of hibernation
a short sharp one admittedly
with this being a world cup summer
but every day without football
is like a blackhole beckoning

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I’m like a fidgety meerkat
emerging into the sunlight
looking up into a Sky full of stars
and still in awe and wonderment
before the reality of woefulness descends
and sets me scurrying away in shock

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I’m like a prickly hedgehog
uncurling testily from the undergrowth
disturbed by Wombles and canaries
by robins, swans, foxes and tigers
by bluebirds, bees, black cats and bulls
and the shaggy-maned tyrannosaurus Savage

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I’m like a cute little bunny
bounding from my bolthole
nose twitching with excitement
hopping from foot to foot
unable to contain myself
with all this over-stimulation

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I’m like a cold blooded snake
slithering smoothly from a sunken cell
testing the air with my tongue
promptly alert to any danger
and all ready to strike
quicker than Torres!

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 I’m like all the above
only even more excited
even more nervous, more worried, more twitchy
than any furry creature in hibernation
as I join the hysterical hordes
all across this hyped up nation!

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 😉

Premiership starts back tomorrow !
