I wanted to join the Foreign Legion, disappearing out of sight,
But my wife won’t let me, she says she needs me here tonight.

There’s a horror film on tele, and she wants me to hold her hand.
I emailed the base commander, hoping he would understand.

But it’s too late, I’d signed the documents just the other day.
He’s sent the French army to collect me. They’re on their b…..y way!

What can I do, where can I hide? My wife will be frightened I’m sure!
Perhaps to the hospital she can take me, if she breaks my jaw.

What do you think? Have you any advice, for such a poor wretch as I?
If you do then post it here, in rhyme if you would care to try


About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.
