Determined to do it properly,
he read the manual.
He followed the instructions to the letter,
and studied the pictures.
He even watched a video,
to improve his performance.
He took his stick,
vermillion red and heated by the flames,
and placing it where required,
he bore down quickly and firmly and then withdrew,
Yes, he’d made a very good impression,
and her fate was sealed.

I found myself ‘waxing lyrical’ again and finding I can’t ignore puns! I hope you enjoy this poem however you interpret it; literally, figuratively or with a double entendre, but don’t think that you have to watch an instructional video yourself! Do listen to this golden oldie from Brian Hyland though, which will take some of us back to 1962.
