Sunday 29 May 2011: The Nicest Man In The World
always wakes with a smile of course.
He doesn't open
exhausted eyes and curse
with all the vehemence
of The Nastiest man In The World.
No, not him.
And if The Nicest Man In The World
drinks a little too much
he doesn't lurch nauseously loowards
next morning with all the elegance
of The Most Hungover Man In The World.
Of course not. He's
The Nicest Man In The World.
He aims to please.
So if you see him,
with his head in his hands,
grumbling with all the eloquence
of The Grumpiest Old Git In The World
give him the benefit of the doubt
if you can.
After all, appearances can be deceptive.
He is The World's Nicest Man.
