Pear Shaped

Image for Pear Shaped Poem © Kate Buttery 2012When it all goes pear-shaped
What shape is the pear?
Is it square?
The shape of the pear?

When it all goes pear-shaped
Tear out your hair
The weather’s not fair
In the shape of the pear.

When it all goes pear-shaped
Does anyone care?
Or see despair
In the shape of the pear?

When it all goes pear-shaped
Sit and stare
Stuck in the chair
The shape of the pear.

When it all goes pear-shaped
What do you wear
No clean clothes spare
With the shape of the pear.

When it all goes pear-shaped
Nobody’s there
Grin and bear
The shape of the pear.

When it all goes pear-shaped
What shape is the pear?
Is it square?
The shape of the pear?

  1. When it all goes pear-shaped,
    They don’t really care,
    Who invoke the pear.
    They just want others to take their share.
