23/4/18 – Cena

John Cena
Bought Ribena
And went to his quiet place

He drank too quick
And felt quite sick
But loved the purple smile on his face

22/4/18 – Nicholson

Jack Nicholson
Lay out in the sun
With cream just on his back

He was having fun
Until he burnt his bum
Right deep inside the crack

20/4/18 – Serkis

Andy Serkis
Went to the circus
And volunteered to try the trapeze

To the delight of his daughter
He was like a duck in water
And glided around with ease

But when he waved to his girl
He fell down to the world
And snapped both of his knees

19/4/18 – Franco

James Franco rented all of his brother Dave’s films.
“God, he’s good,” he said.
“And absolutely gorgeous.”
When he finished the last movie
He realised he hadn’t been watching films starring Dave Franco,
He’d been watching films starring himself.
He laughed at how similar they both looked
And felt slightly less bad about masturbating throughout.

18/4/18 – Hart

Melissa Joan Hart
Was living in the past.
All day she’d talk to black cats she’d walk by
And at night sit at the window hoping Sam would stop by.
But he didn’t, because he wasn’t real.
And the cats would always scratch her whenever she would kneel.

17/4/18 – Bean

Sean Bean had a window to clean,
So he bought a sponge and some Mr Sheen.
He started to scrub, but the stain wouldn’t budge,
So he punched it.
And punched it.
And punched it.
And punched it.
