MR BORING
 

By Josie Whitehead

Mr Boring

I knew a man called 'Boring'

     And he really was a bore!

When he wasn't talking dreary talk

      He'd go to bed and snore.

 

He wore lacklustre trousers

     And a hat quite dull and drab.

But the strangest thing about him 

      Was he thought that he was fab.

 

He had no friends - of course not –

     For he was a stuffy bloke,

And when he came upon the scene

      Folk disappeared like smoke.

 

ARE YOU READY FOR A SHOCK NOW?

 

Well, I remember Mr Boring,

     Oh but that was years ago,

But then he started writing poetry

 

And . . . .    guess what . . . . !!!

    He's a LAUREATE now you know!!

Notes:  Lacklustre: - - Dull and unfashionable (with regard to clothes).

Lacklustre is an adjective, describing the noun 'trousers'.  I have used so many adjectives in my poems.  Write down as many other adjectives and their meanings that you can find.  When describing someone, you need lots of adjectives - but hopefully, your person, will be a much nicer person than Mr Boring.
