National Poetry Day - Thursday 8 October 2015

Options
Thursday 8 October is National Poetry Day!

So in true poetic spirit we'd like you to give us your best shot at a MoneySaving ditty.

Whether you're into limericks or haikus, sonnets or ballads, join in and write us a little something.

We'll share our favourites on the @MSE_Forum

Need some inspiration? Check out the efforts from 2013 and 2014 .

Happy composing :)

(P.S. we're putting this on the Marriages board intentionally - have fun!)

    When we announced
    The imminent arrival of another
    Daughter wanted a sister, son wanted
    A brother
    - And little one wanted
    A pig.

    When they first met him,
    grunting and squeaking
    And greedily sucking
    The cry went up
    "Why does little one
    Always get
    His Own Way?"

    Poetry is a doddle
    It really is a breeze
    Unless your poem's on paper
    Then make sure you don't sneeze.

    Poetry is such fun
    You really can't go wrong
    If you find a brilliant pun
    It really doesn't take long

    Poems are a lovely way
    To make all your friends laugh
    Just make them funny not dodgy
    So you don't make them barf!

    When I am sad and weary
    When I think all hope has gone
    When I walk along High Holborn
    I think of you with nothing on

    Christmas is coming and you are probably spending too much
    But you wont be the only one it always happens as such
    You spend what you think you need to and what you will
    and after Xmas you will need to pick up the bill

    But fear not my old friend help is always to hand
    From Martin Lewis's forum and his loyal users band
    They are a good bunch of folk and are your best bet
    With good sound advice to help with your debt

    First tell us what has happened and how you got there
    Be honest and be brave and promise not to swear
    They will ask some questions and for your statement of affairs
    By this they mean financial not the other I'm sure your aware

    Once you have done this, help will come directly your way
    From lots of nice people to keep your worries at bay.
    They will suggest ways to cut back to help your financial state
    Never fear they won't help you because it is never too late

    In months to come you will see your finances change
    Not being in so much debt will feel somewhat strange
    If you help yourself and take advice from these kind folk
    you will see for yourself that you are no longer broke

    Get yourself started and type those thoughts in your head
    Go on, take the first step and start a new thread
    I know you won't regret it because I have seen it before
    Take their good advice and be in debt no more
