Just a few of the things I never did...
I have never
          been to London to see the Queen
          sailed with the Beatles in a Yellow Submarine
          acted with the big stars in a silver celluloid dream
          played in a bar on an old tambourine

but then...

I have never
          smoked a fat cigar with the boys in the house
          whistled a tune about a windmill and a mouse
          listened to Al Einstein as he his theory did espouse
          dined on filet mignon with Monsieur Escoffier and his spouse

and although...

I have never
          drunk a Tennessee whiskey sour with a Daniel name of Jack
          won a game of snooker where I potted the last black
          pulled a little lever to reveal a shiny plaque
          jumped from a train and chased it down the track

that's okay because...

I have never
          read aloud a limerick and tried to keep it clean
          cut myself a hazel twig and taught myself to dowse
          emptied out my suitcase and helped an elephant to pack, then
          written a self referencing poem that meets itself coming back
