Quiz Night – Written November 2001 (Aged 26)

Quiz Night

life is quiz night
most of us,
are still on round one
the answers are evasive
it is not much fun
but it is on the tip of our tongues

round two,
saw me choosing between c and d
how was it for you?
going from a to b

round three,
saw me trying to work out the voice
it demanded a definite answer
and i was hoping for multiple choice

life is quiz night
someone else seems to win
and get all the answers right
yet some do not know where to begin

round four,
it is the final round
positions do not matter at the final door
what goes around comes around
an entry into that final prize draw

James Garratt – November 2001
