Best Man’s Speech

Here’s an excerpt from a Best Man’s speech which I wrote for a nervous customer who couldn’t think what to say.

…..
And so we turn now to the Bride
the one and only Jilly
Who’s taken my good influence
And turned NAME all silly.

He thinks of home, not opening time
Does family visits and stuff
He’s off to shops and going through lists
He’s soft this lad not tough

What’s happened to my drinking pal,
My beer buddy, my bro?
He’s left me for a new life
And it’s right that he should go.

For his new bride is beautiful
She’s clever and she’s gentle
If he hadn’t snapped her up
We’d have said he’s really mental

I’m honoured to be their friend
And will you please now join me
In drinking to their future happiness
And prosperity
