‘No Likey, No Lighty!’ by Dean Atta

Jul 5, 2021

Paddy McGuinness comes
into my bedroom at 4am
and turns on the light.

I turn to where my boyfriend
should be but it’s not him.

Instead of my boyfriend,
I’m in bed with Michael Pedersen
of Scottish poetry fame.

Paddy McGuinness has real fame.

And my boyfriend, you might
have clapped for him once a week
but you don’t know his name.
