The Tale of Speccy and Sporty

Young Speccy and Sporty
Became firm friends for life.
Bonding over comics and footballs,
And computers and bikes.
Trendy Speccy and Sporty
Became their street’s fashion hits.
Modelling worn-out dressing gowns,
Or that season's football kit.
Bewildered Speccy and Sporty
Tried hard to fit in at school.
Teachers hailed one a prodigy,
And labelled the other a fool.
Nonplussed Speccy and Sporty
Devoted their time to the telly.
Arguing was Dr Who or Match of the Day,
The best TV program ever.
Distracted Speccy and Sporty
Found god and love stood no chance.
As when you own a PlayStation or Xbox,
You’ve no time for religion or romance.
Finally Speccy and Sporty
Grew happily old together.
Having lived their lives entwined,
And with no regrets what so ever.
Written by Richard Archer
