A Bucket Full of Buttercups

A Bucket Full of Buttercups

A Poem by Neville Pettitt

I'm fed up with Brussels....

A Bucket Full of Buttercups

 

He gave her a bucket full of buttercups

That went with her marmalade hair

She said graze signor

Would you now care to take me somewhere

That I’ve never been taken before

 

Then he gave her a boot full of daisies

That went with her white cotton slip

She said merci monsieur

Would you now care to take me somewhere

That I’ve never been taken before

 

He gave her a boat full of forget me nots

That went with the blue of her eyes

She said Blagodarya vi gospodine
Would you now care to take me somewhere
That I’ve never been taken before
 

Then he gave her a cartload of turnips

That went with zilch or nothing at all

She said Danke mein Herr

Would you rather prefer a blooming

Good smack in the balls………

Been scolded for my language further down so, protecting whatever little reputation I have, here's a small adjustment : Laughing all the way to wherever I'm going.. you caustic teller of whatever! Seems that politics, pleading and petting could get you into trouble, especially that final 'they're .. . .. .

Cleverly writ, all day wit, Neville!

Back at you, and my sincere pleasure..
Brilliant and fun Neville. I'm with you on the Brussels thing entirely. I kept getting distracted by past thoughts of being in Bruges and wishing I could find a sharp object to impale myself on, as well as Colin Farrell and the brilliant Brendan Gleeson in the movie In Bruges, who basically came to the same conclusion of the place.
Great ending :)
ps...I meant great ending to your write, not the movie....although that does have a great ending too.
pps...see how distracted I am :)

Dear me! You had me at the cartload of turnips; flowers are a dime a dozen. (singing) You don't bring me turnips, anymore...

Ha-ha! I needed a good laugh. This is a butt-load of fun! I'm learning to be wary of your seemingly serious poetry, Neville.
