Nothing is a Wonderful Word

Nothing is a Wonderful Word

A Poem by Philip Franklin



Nothing is a Wonderful Word

Nothing is a wonderful word

When it’s truly for free

But nothing always means nothing

When the offer is for me


Nothing is a wonderful word

But beware the tiny print

In contracts commercial and emotional

You may well end up skint   (means broke cockney word)


Nothing is a wonderful word

But in my humble opinion

The only word in English that’s worse

And I revisit Ruyard Kipling

is IF.
