A JINGLE/JANGLES BIT
The Jinglin' Geordie?
Yes I know him.
Did a gig together,
and some drinking !
a song some sing -
had a dog, no beer-can,
unlike Jinglin' !
A beer and verse
ever at hand,
the Jinglin' geordie
The jaded and the debauched
are among the high and the low,
paradoxically there's the lowest, find,
the higher that you go.
Riches can buy you anything?
Not protection from the shadows that grow.
Here it is men pay their rents -
in bars filled with drinkers and decadents -
for Siam ladies for the night or day,
hot almost as a Chinese-takeaway.
Had these suns upon them smiled
in a dream, then Byron and Wilde
might have found a way to them.
Raise a glass to the girls, ghostly-gentlemen !
