Trivial Pursuit


A match between me and my parents
My dad always wins,
For he is too darn clever
To allow anyone else to win.

I even tried playing it
With my mum alone;
But, alas, my father still won
The game for some reason.

I enjoy playing Trivial
Pursuit in the evening.
It helps me to relax;
More than if I sing.

But, alas, I’ll never win a game
While my father’s still here,
For he has excellent general knowledge,
Enough for him to beat you.

So tonight I’ll play a game
Of Trivial Pursuit.
In fact, to play against me,
I genuinely challenge you.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
