Men Talking

A poem by Wendy Cope.

Anecdotes and jokes,
On and on and on.
If you’re with several blokes,
It’s anecdotes and jokes.

If you were to die
Of boredom, there and then,
They’d notice, by and by,
If you were to die.

But it could take a while.
They’re having so much fun.
You neither speak nor smile.
It could take a while.
