Sometimes I Rhymes: A Polished Performance

For some reason I was thinking about the 1970’s.

I think it was because of the new BBC dramatisation of ‘The Little Drummer Girl’, the latest John Le Carre novel to have a TV series made of it and kept in its original contemporary time setting.

Anyway, beige Ford Cortinas were common then.

A Polished Performance

There was a rough guy from Medina

Who cherished his beige Ford Cortina

He kept it well polished

But was often admonished

When he buffed with a young ballerina
