Dispatches from the wilds of Poetania – “Nom de plume”

I don’t go to Gloria Jean’s for the tea
not really.
I mean, it’s tea-bags –
I might as well buy my own at Woolworths.
But they always ask for my name,
and never for ID.
“Shazam?” calls out the girl behind the counter
“Shazam?”
Tomorrow, I think I shall be Napoleon.

  1. You know I like this one.

    Now comment on my damn blog! 😛

  2. I have to ask…

    Have you ever used ‘Alcibiades’?

    • How could I not have thought of that?!

      I shall, oh, I shall.
