Some will absolutely give in
when freely presented with gin.
Behaviour is bare,
defiance is rare,
the truth and the dares do us in.

The late David Bowie put shine
in music and costumes sublime.
It’s just a vague hunch
that he took a punch
from Bing right around Christmastime.

He showed up “surprise!” at his door
no warning or phone call before.
“You’ll see what I bring,
I think we should sing
that Drummer Boy tune, it’s a bore!”

“We’ll liven it up, give it zap
to beat out that dry Christmas crap!”
A duet so famed
emerged from their game
once Bing had agreed, “that’s a wrap!”
