An Ode to Glorious Slash...

I am a big fan of Slash of Guns n Roses/Velvet Revolver fame. Always have been. In the summer, when This Baby was tiny and I nursed her in the wee small hours my mind wandered over to the subject of The Marvellous Mr Slash. It was his birthday, and I had not slept much. I wrote this ode to the great man and promptly forgot all about it, until I found it hidden in a note on my phone the other day. I thought I'd share it with you, partly as proof that you go a little bonkers when you are sleep deprived and partly to show that I should definitely not quit my day job with overblown dreams of becoming a poet. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you;

An Ode to Slash

Oh Slash, lovely Slash,
You may have lots of cash....
but you're also a remarkably talented man, despite some questionable sartorial choices in your past.....

Your wife's name is Perla,
But in many ways it's a shame you're married, cos you're enough to give a girl a......
curly feeling in her fanaca....

You were born in Stoke-on-Trent,
where some might say long hair & leather kecks make you look bent,
but not me.
I've always admired your ability to look truly individual, although I do think some of your tattoos are a little iffy....

Your birthday is today...
So enjoy, and make hay
And feel free to turn this into some sort of cliff-top based guitar ballad, but remember to shove some of the royalties in my direction eh love?


  1. Lol aww thats so cute!! And fanaca is my new favourite word! :P


    1. Fanaca is a very useful word to discover just prior to having a baby! It's just gibberish enough not to be disgusting ;)

  2. I never knew Slash was born in Stoke on Trent...

  3. I am awed by your poetic prowess! And Guns & Roses absolutely rules, so its totally understandable~*

    1. Why thank you :) only man alive that can get away with leather trousers! Now THERE'S am accolade! ;)

  4. This?! This is amazing.
    PS the frist song my sister learned to sing was Paradise City. She was about 2. I think that explains a lot about her.

    1. Why thank you. Both yourself and your sister clearly have excellent taste!

  5. Truly and utterly mindblown by the awesome. As Otto would say, "For reals."

    1. Otto is a poet too! For reals is my new favourite phrase!
