VALENTINE

I like your dreamy eyes.
I like your strange stories.
I like your soft shy lips.
I like your daft wee ways.
I like your lovely hands.
I like your snort of a laugh.
I like your witty jokes.
I like your love of gossip.
I like your funny dance.
I like you saying my name.
I like your humble kindness.
I like your lack of shame.
I like you fine. I like you a lot.
Will you be my - you know what?

Jackie Kay

The butcher said to himself, puzzled,
"Why on earth did I leave him unmuzzled?
FOURTEEN steaks ate the hound
And they each weighed a pound,
That's a stone's worth of stock Rover's guzzled!"
