Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?
larrylark

“If we build with arched entrances
 1
it puts up costs.”
 2
The builders reptilian features were lost
 3
among his lack of concern,
 4
while calculating how much he’d earn.
 5
He knew there was money to burn.
 6
If he could charge more he certainly would.
 7
 
 
“Why should a slimy lizard like him
 8
Have all the frickin’ luck?
 9
A lottery win, 13,000,000 quid,
 10
honey of a girl with snake shakin’ hips.
 11
Binned his job…Wor a nob.
 12
It’s a sin what I’d give just to kiss her gob.
 13
Makes you feel like chuckin’ it in,
 14
goin’ on the piss wiv yer kit off.”
 15
 
 
“You’re a winner and a sinner,”
 16
drawled the honey pot. Her fingers twirled
 17
the three remaining hairs,
 18
on the mutant millionaire,
 19
who straight away had divorced the wife,
 20
for a new life with next doors au pair
 21
and what a pair.
 22
 
 
She poured a treble Tia Maria
 23
over fruit cocktail soaked in brandy schnapps
 24
while he went for a crap.
 25
Sat on a mink lined toilet seat,
 26
while polishing his diamond crusted false teeth.
 27
 
 
Meanwhile she lay sunning her pin thin legs
 28
among the rubble. “She’s trouble.” he thought,
 29
“But I wish I had a dose.” He ripped off his shirt,
 30
stirred up the mortar, Morose, builders bum wobbling
 31
he laid down bricks as thick as he was.
