Lord Byron Makes A Sexual Health Clinic Appointment
Oh that thou muntered a laundered dossbag
The fool and his bust juice gratefully unplug
The solitude of recovering is a slider’s brother
Has lost its scrangy thrills
There may be others drooly on Monte Blanco
I am not a lamp-genie, more-time!
I feel an ebb the hoolies fade
And the tide vibes onto its raggedy hem
Glossary of slang: Muntered – Minging, Bust Juice – Semen, Slider – Shirker, Drooly – Attractive,
More-Time! – Laters, Hoolie – Wild Party, Scrangy – Dirty.
Lord Byron Leaves DNA On A Cup
Perhaps – the workings of astrals and identities smudge
Within me, the pissant double helix uncoils
Brought on by an inconsiderable flob
Perhaps a harder look would evidence bones
For all ridgy-didge night stars we infest
And with light the pinpoint takes its centre, these
Have taught me skin-pops too are evolving
The chief companion is human dregs
Glossary of slang: Pissant – Trifling, Flob – To Spit, Ridgy-Didge – Honest.
Lord Byron Goes For An Ultrasound
Kingdoms and empires jitter in cell grits
I have outlived rang-a-tang infirmities
And when I coffee-spit incubated bile
Of my own years as a yo-boy all edged
Like a wild flapdoodle in derro-ville
Something – gutsachey pops
A spirit of twannie indulgence
Even for me it’s a zofting flinch
Glossary of slang: Rang-A-Tang – Belligerent, Yo-Boy – Hooligan, Edged – Nervous,
Flapdoodle – Fuss, Derro-Ville – Derelict, Twannie – Stupid, Zofting – Pleasing.
Lord Byron Bungee Jumps For Charity
For thee this wooshious stunt
I know myself peaky, devil-may-care
We were and are mardies, once only the S.A.S.
Beings stoked for function
It is the same psych out any aviation blonde entertains
From life’s wilding nerves
We are entwined star-spas, chavvie-close
The tie which bound rakes up wamba for the penniless

Psych Out – Unnerve, Aviation Blonde – Peroxided, Wilding – Running Amok,
Star-Spas – Mates, Chavvie – Underclass, Wamba – Money.
Lord Byron Is Tracked By GPS
But saving this on underware’s index
You like vanilla meridians, barista forth
Such as in Monmouth-Street where window-lickers dawdle
Would rig flave clientele to exquisite buffage
And even skells import loveliness
Where prettier droids wheeze rettes
For, bating Covent Garden all le chat
No place is ever fugly in unsparkling light

Window-Licker – Slow Wit, Flave – Stylish, Buffage – Attractive, Skells – The Homeless,
