I’m No longer a Spy – A Silly Rhyme

This Spying game,

It’s such a shame,

I’m not cut out for it you see.

When I trail a bloke

I cough and choke

And they find out It’s me.

I’m far too clumsy,

Yes, it’s true,

To be a proper spy.

I trip and fall,

Fall off the wall,

No matter how I try.

I’m no good undercover

I failed miserably at that.

I’m too easy to discover

even if I wear a hat.

I tried going incognito

With a leg that’s lame

Despite being incredibly discreto

I couldn’t remember my sodding name.

It’s far too much to handle

This cloak and daggers lark

I went and caused a scandal

when they found me naked in the dark.

So, I’ve handed in my notice

“It’s for the best” spymaster said.

As a spy, I’m totally hopeless

So, I’ve joined the police instead.
