The Drama Queen - A Poem

A crying baby, this face is often pulled by drama queens... | Source

Nigel is a drama queen,

He loves attention,

"Me me me!"

In his life, all he can see

Is his world

Most importantly!

He'll call and say

"I'll come at two

For a cup of tea

And how are are you"

Then doesn't show his face all day

When you ask

He will say

"Something came up

Sorry babe

This is the worst week of my life!"

Nigel is the life and soul

Of any party

His life's goal

To laugh and joke

And have some fun,

All eyes on him,

Every one!

And yes,

He is a ladies man

They all love him

Because he can

Splash the cash

And make them laugh

They'd love to be his other half!

But then he comes

For a cup of tea

"A girls upset now

Look at me

This is the worst week of my life..."


Worse than the last one?


If something doesn't

Go his way

Nigel's tantrum

Is legendary!

He'll stamp his foot

And shout and huff

And storm off shouting


And all his friends say

"He'll be ok

He's only young

At thirty six

He hasn't learnt yet

All life's tricks"


Despite his drama's

And his plight,

His friends that love him

(Lucky Nige...)


When Nigel grows up

He'll be all right!

      Hello Colin my friend! Late reply due to leaving Christmas prep until the last minute as always... lol To answer your question, I have been working 7 days a week lately, I'm a rubbish boss, I never give myself any time off! :-) Off for Christmas now though so looking forward to visiting my family now and letting them do all the cooking... ;-)

      I still have some shopping to do today on Christmas Eve, but am waiting for a delivery of logs for my burner before I can go anywhere... so plenty of fresh coffee and bacon sandwiches this morning!

      Thoroughly enjoyed Eric Dolphy, thanks! Listening to Frankie Sumatra's Christmas Cocktails on Soundcloud now to get me in the mood... ;-)

      Sending you the warmest of warm Christmas wishes my friend, may it be peaceful and full of love, and good health, prosperity and happiness for the coming year, and very sweet dreams! ;-) Hugs from the riverbank in England, Jennifer

      Good morning sweet Jennifer - are you off to work this morning or do you have Saturdays off?

      I love your writing here - it shows how much you excel at humor, wit and whimsy - and yes that is a picture of me crying (lol) when I don't hear from you in awhile - I sincerely hope all is well with you in your world - and I am having my 2nd cup of coffee with 2 sugar donuts with some Schubert piano - and after all of that I don't know whether to fly or go back to bed - I was just in the middle of a beautiful romance with a lovely lady in my dreams when I awoke so maybe I should go back to bed now and pick up where I left off - lol - I am sending you and your family sincere Christmas wishes and continued health , happiness and prosperity for the coming new year.

      And my jazz tip for you this morning - Eric Dolphy - wow what a player! And a really great English band around the days of the early Stones - The Pretty Things

      Thanks Debbie! I fear all may be lost for our Nige on the growing up front... luckily at the moment his car is off the road, and apart from a daily text message telling me he's still got no transport, my time has been really freed up! :-) Thank you for your comments and the share my friend, All the best, Jen

      Hi bravewarrior! Yes it's true, boy's remain boys, they just get bigger! I've found that dealing with a toddler tantrum and a 36 year old tantrum is the same... ignore it mostly and it stops... laughing at it helps too! :-)

      Thank you for reading and commenting my friend, all the best, Jen

      Jennifer, we all know boys never grow up. They just have more expensive toys! Throwing tantrums at age 36? Hmmm. No wonder he keeps having the 'worst week yet'!

      Very adorable right about Nigel. I think we have a few in our crew of friends that would have quite a few traits in common with him!

      Graham, LaThing, Jan, Bill, Kashmir, travmaj, MizBejabbers, CrisSp, and always exploring, thank you all for your lovely comments and votes, I'm glad you like my poem about Nigel...

      I just spoke to Nigel, he went out last night so he's feeling a little rough, and he thinks he's probably coming down with something nasty, in fact he's never felt so ill! He thinks the girl he was chatting up last night might turn out to be a "bunny boiler", and he's worried she knows the girl he liked last week who could very possibly turn out to be the "love of his life" if "bunny boiler" doesn't spoil everything... to cut a long story short, I turned down his invitation to visit him and make him tea and soup...

      Poor Nigel... I think you may all be right.. growing up doesn't appear to be on the agenda just yet... :-)

      All the best from the riverbank, Jen

      What fun hub to read Jen! I think I'd like to follow his progress and document it. Lol!

      Good job!

      His kind usually never grows up. The tragedy is that if they do, it takes a tragedy to make them grow up. Anyway, it is a funny poem, and I liked it. Voted up.

      36???? Well let's hope he grows up soon before they are shoveling dirt over him. :) Great fun, but so much truth in it for several people that I know. Well done Jen!
