What I Love…

(with thanks to Edwin Morgan)

What I love about chips is the salt

What I hate about cats is the boredom

What I love about cats is their honesty 

What I hate about England is its ego

What I love about Liverpool is its chirp

What I hate about margarine is its gleam

What I love about Thursdays is Friday

What I hate about Mondays is Monday

What I love about you is your muscly arms

What I hate about him is his ham face

What I love about love is its warm skin

            that accepts my cold feet.
