A bit of ‘Boring’

The word Boring sounds dull, tedious and leaden. If it were a colour it would be a heavy, gloomy grey, and it would obscure all possibilities of fun, hope and brightness.

Yet the wonderful witty poet Wendy Cope has written a poem out of being too boring. It works really well; it’s amusing, realistic and poignant…

‘Someone to stay home with was all my desire 

And, now that I’ve found a safe mooring,

I’ve just one ambition in life: I aspire

To go on and on being boring.’

She said of the poem, “it goes down well with adult audiences…adolescents find it shocking!”

Wendy Cope is 70 years on 21st July. Her poems brings smiles to the faces of everyone who reads them…they are brilliant and not at all boring!
