 He has slept with accountants and brokers,
With a cowgirl (well, someone from Healds).
He has slept with non-smokers and smokers In commercial and cultural fields.
He has slept with book-keepers, book-binders, Slept with auditors, florists, PAs Child psychologists, even child minders, With directors of firms and of plays.
He has slept with the stupid and clever.
He has slept with the rich and the poor But he sadly admits that he's never Slept with a poet before.
Real poets are rare, he confesses, While it's easy to find a cashier.
So I give him some poets' addresses And consider a change of career.
