A Bowtie and I

A model of distinction

I’ll explain why
I’m wearing a bowtie
in this photograph

I wish to be a model
and it is a doddle
for a cheating chap
to edit a snap.

It is a ruse
that’s easy to use
and a selling pitch
to become rich.

I may look debonair,
and full of flair
but I have no doubt
they’ll find out

that I am pilose,
I have a big nose
and a fat belly,
If I go on the telly.

I could insist
that I’m a fantasist
but it will transpire
that I am a liar.
