A while back, I started the Buy John a Drink Fund, and I've gotten some contributions. I promised I'd write a poem of praise and gratitude for whoever tossed me a few quid. Tim at [personal profile] starfleet posted his here if you're a friend of theirs, but this one's for [personal profile] veluriel .

Before we get to the poem, get yourself a piece of paper or a word document or sommat, and write down some words:

1. adjective
2. noun
3. noun
4. adjective
5. adjective
6. verb
7. noun
8. plural noun
9. verb
10. noun
11. plural time period [i.e. weeks]
12. adjective
13. phrase
14. phrase
15. noun
16. verb
17. noun
18. noun
19. verb
20. adverb
21. noun
22. noun
23. same as 22.

Now fill them in...


Three cheers for Yam, the [1. adjective] [2. noun]

Whose Aussie [3. noun] some Gordon’s bought.

A loyal friend, I’m [4. adjective] he’s [5. adjective],

Or would [6. verb], if he had a [7. noun].

But these mere [8. plural noun], they cannot [9. verb]

A [10. noun] who’s ‘round most [11. plural time period] and days,

And reminds us so, with [12. adjective] wit

Like “[13. phrase]” and “[14. phrase]” and [15. noun].

So [16. verb] your [17. noun] up high, my mate,

And drink it to this [18. noun] I [19. verb].

‘Cause even if he’s [20. adverb] worth a [21. noun],

I’ve [22. noun] for drinks, and [23. same noun] well-meant.

Three cheers for Yam, the squishy monkey
Whose Aussie dork some Gordon’s bought.
A loyal friend, I’m purple he’s elephantine,
Or would run, if he had a chocobo.
But these mere doorknobs, they cannot barf
An earwax who’s ‘round most eons and days,
And reminds us so, with scrappy wit
Like “Like, y'know?” and “Arr, Matey” and vampire.
So light your telephone up high, my mate,
And drink it to this grammar I eat.
‘Cause even if he’s exactly worth a deer,
I’ve acrobat for drinks, and acrobat well-meant.

Some of that works disturbingly well.
You're still a bastard, John Constantine. I should know.
