Point me to the cliche

Who doesn’t like to sneer at a cliche?
Although pound for pound sneers don’t count for much,
here I can write what I like – a double whammy.
Or a winning combination!

Let me call a spade a spade…….
this separates the wheat from the chaff,
or have I merely shot myself in the foot?
Only time will tell!

I may seem like an okay sort of guy
(does the Pope wear a funny hat?)
and have both oars in the water
but who would know?

OK, let’s be honest, this was a half-baked idea,
but even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while,
and I thought I would have a shot.
Although I won’t hold my breath!

With tongue firmly planted in cheek
I’ve put my best foot forward –
‘cos in this life if you snooze, you lose
So here’s looking at you, kid!
