Bookworm

At school I was bookish,
To book – a bookworm.

What would that be in Latin ?
Bookum, Booket, Booker

The Booker – yeah baby !

Others had their marathons, I had the MS Readathon.
They had cramps, I had a comfy chair.

Why is it bookworm anyway ?
Small, peevish, short sighted…slightly slimy

Alright – environmentally sound – but dull nevertheless.

It seems so passive – booooooook – wooooooorm

Why not book Gazelle ? Book Cheetah ? Book Swan ?

‘cos I’m a lover and a fighter.

I’ll see your James Hird, your Buckley and Sheeds
With my Lindqvist, Eggers and Clarke.

And I’ll raise you a Kaz Cooke ‘cos nothing beats that.
