Please don’t be nice to me,

I don’t think I would cope,

I’d burst into tears,

and lose all my hope.

 

I’m back of the queue,

I’ve placed myself there,

I won’t move forward,

with my tunic of hair.

 

Throw me some praise,

and I’ll colour up puce,

I’ll duck and I’ll dive,

and it’s really no use.

 

I have my own mantra,

of make do and mend,

keep calm and get on,

I’m so good at pretend.
