Top Trumped!

Share

Are you are old/young enough to remember the playground game of Top Trumps? It involved a set of cards that displayed groups of items (in my case cars!) that all had values. My poor selection (normally Morris 1000 or worse) was always top trumped by my friends (Jaguar or better). Plus ca change this week…

I was in Lloyds Bank yesterday morning,
Was standing in the queue,
When I spied a cardboard cut-out,
And thought to impress you.

I sidled up as cool as I could,
Line of customers in full view,
And took a photo bold as brass,
Thinking smugly ‘That’ll do!’

The Olympic Torch in cardboard,
Complete with impressive flame,
I thought I’d print it out later,
And play a little game!

I didn’t bargain for Matthew Hanson,
A cunning player is he,
Topped trumped me with the real torch,
Was on Facebook before tea!
TOP-TRUMP HANSON!
