There are many interesting friends in my life
I am friends with Ireland’s fattest man, Michael O’ Besity
I am friends with Ireland’s skinniest woman, Anne O’ Rexia
I am friends with a man who knows the meanings and spellings of all the words
in the universe: Mr Dick Chenery
I am also friends with the world’s most aggressive woman, Anna Mossity
And the world’s nicest man, Ben Evolent.
But my best friend is plain old simple Bob. We have tea and custard creams together in a room
with white walls where women in stiff white dresses give us what they call our “sweeties”
every few hours.
But strangely when I eat them all my other friends go away.
