Today’s things are: cheese, feather, game

And I would like to add that this is entirely fictitious with no basis in fact whatsoever.

Love, Unrequitedly

 

My Mentor thinks he’s so smart,

But there’s an element of doubt

When it comes to affairs of the heart

He can’t seem to work it all out.

 

I gaze up into his eyes

As he explains how science configures

And I exhale with tender sighs

Oh, How I adore authority figures.

 

Although they say love is a game.

I’m not sure he knows the rules

It always ends up the same.

Its clear love is a game for fools.

 

When I gave him an affectionate squeeze,

You could have knocked me down with a feather!

Quicker than you could say cheese.

He ran away, hell for leather.

 

But there’s plenty more fish in the sea,

So, I won’t let it get me down,

I’m going to enrol at University.

Don’t you just love a nice cap and gown?

The End.

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.
