Make Sheila Feel Alive, Clive!

The latest poetic review of Erinsborough’s Ramsay Street

Oh Mr Clive Gibbons, the suave CEO,
Please go out with Sheila; she needs you, you know.
She’s made bad decisions with a few men she’s met,
But she has a kind heart and she’s feeling upset.

She knows you’re a good egg, so give her a chance.
She’s not had much fortune with men and romance.
You could be the modern day Harold and Madge!
And that is the mark of an honourable badge!

We need to keep Clive in the midst of the street,
And when Sheila’s in love she’s amusing and sweet.
She can get tips from Susan on blue box attire,
And set both your heart and the suburb on fire!

So come along Clive, be a perfect love-healer
And nestle in close to the bosom of Sheila!

The Plot Thickens

The latest poetic review of Erinsborough’s Ramsay Street

It’s hotting up in Ramsay Street,
The mystery goes on.
Is Mark a cop now dark and bad?
Will his freedom soon be gone?

Or is the herring red and false,
Some twists and turns in store?
Destroying the evidence was dumb.
He’s heading for a fall.

Meanwhile young lovers reunite,
So in their joy we revel.
Are Ben and Xanthe taking things
To the infamous ‘next level’?

And Courtney had her painted claws
Quite deeply into Paul.
She planned the nuptials with a quiz,
So she could ‘win it all’.

But Paul, despite saying ‘Let’s elope,’
Got cold feet on the day.
And Courtney’s been left high and dry,
She’s begging ‘Let me stay.’

And what’s this now? A Christmas vow
Our Sonya’s quietly plotting?
She wants her Toad to know
He’s more than the dead plant he was potting.

One thing the viewers want to see
(Please, writers, pay attention)
Is something very special
So deserves a special mention.

Australia said YES! And so
Down to the lake we’re heading.
Please Aaron, David, tie the knot,
As we love a neighbours wedding!

Lyneeeeeee Returns (Again)

Yet another poetic review of Erinsborough’s Ramsay Street

Oh Lyneee, dear Lyneee,
Emotional Lyn,
You’ve come to see Steffie
And poke your nose in.

You’ve snuck cash to Amy
Behind Steffie’s back.
She won’t take too kindly
To that kind of tack!

Last week we had fireworks,
This week there’ll be more
As you shake your wild hair
And tell others the score.

You always bring drama
Wherever you go,
When you flounce in and out,
All your feelings on show.

Will Paul rush to greet you
With a hug and a kiss?
Well somehow we doubt it –
But I will say this:

Whenever our Lyneee
Is back in the ’hood,
There’s always a crisis.
This doesn’t look good!

The Neighbours Whodunnit

The latest in a series of regular poetic reviews of Erinsborough’s Ramsay Street

Was it Sheila with a gnome,
Or was it Gary with a blow?
Was it Tyler in a fit of rage?
The viewers need to know!
Was it nurse Louise, whodunnit,
Leaving Hamish there to drown,
Was it Mark who turned to Killer Cop?
Who might be going down?

Was it Kirsha with a firework
That was lit unwittingly?
Did a dog give Roache’s heart a scare?
It’s still a mystery.
Did someone from the party
Creep along to do the deed?
Suffocation by Terese’s chest?
That surely would succeed?

Who really murdered Hamish?
We’re all searching for the clues.
Was it Amy with a hammer
Or did Fay sneak in? You choose!
Was it Elly stumbling drunkenly
With bottle in her hand?
Or did Russell’s ghost come down to strike
When he heard what Roach had planned?

Now Paul is grinning ear to ear
As he bribes the hapless Gary.
He knows he’s got him in a fix
So he and T can’t marry.
The viewers are on tenterhooks,
With the who, what, when, where, how.
Don’t leave us all adrift, cast out,
We need some answers NOW!

Temperatures Raise With Terese

The latest in a series of regular poetic reviews of Erinsborough’s Ramsay Street

Terese, Terese, you saucy minx,
You’ve really changed your style.
You’re posing like a bad gal now
With a sultry, sensuous smile.
A star of social media, the face of the hotel.
With your assets on display,
You ‘nearly’ wore the dress so well!

As Courtney snapped, you got quite bold,
And loved the sexy pose.
A whole new role could soon be yours,
As a star of glamour shows!
With Sheila as the compare
And Gary as security,
It would ensure no seedy guests,
And thus maintain your purity.

But businessmen would get a treat
To see you pirouette,
And Lassiter’s would prosper
With the finest floor show yet!
Terese, Terese, tear off those suits,
And get those fishnets showing.
Get star awards as manager
And the men of Erisborough glowing!

Water-Ramsay-Street-Gate

The third in a series of regular poetic reviews of Erinsborough’s Ramsay Street – this one a review of the week’s episodes

It’s hotting up in Ramsay Street,
We’ve got a little nearer.
We know that Hamish is a con,
It’s all becoming clearer.
But Tyler thinks he’s water-tight
And won’t hear Piper’s plea.
His sorrows drowned with the T-Bone texts,
His brain is all at sea.

So Aaron is in ‘Gay Paree’
And he’s such a super sleuth,
Compared to Mark he’s double quick
In uncovering the truth.
He’s found the house to catch the girl
To catch the conman out.
He might catch Andrea as well,
As he hotfoots it about.

And, meanwhile hapless Gary
Took a deep breath not intended.
Found comatose in the Penthouse lift,
Paul’s dinner party ended.
Confessions then from Moneybags
Of his and Courtney’s plot.
Well what a shock, who’d ever guess?
We were flabbergasted. Not!

I’m sensing fireworks yet to come
And more explosive tales,
And sultry scenes and drama –
And a warning, perhaps, of gales?
It’s all going on in Erinsborough
And it’s all going off as well.
We’re bubbling like the hot tub
For what next week has to tell!

Rewriting history?

The second in a series of regular poetic reviews of Erinsborough’s Ramsay Street – this one prompted by two October webisodes

Oh Paul, oh Paul, what have you done?
You’ve changed the lives of everyone
Who ever lived in Ramsay Street
(And those who died there too).
Did you correct your past mistakes
By going back to do re-takes?
And have you altered history?
What are you going to do?

Oh Paul, oh Paul, the ‘old’ Terese
Has rather different, common ways,
She’s not the classy lady that
You tried to prise from Gary.
And as your past comes back to haunt,
You’re looking spooked, and pale, and gaunt
When you meet your kids and find
That two of them decide to marry!

Is this surreal experience a lesson learnt?
We’re in suspense,
And did you still burn Lassiter’s
And marry Gail? Do tell!
And what about the other wives?
(You’ve had a few in your past lives!)
And did your nephew still get trapped
With Immy, down a well?

We have so many questions, Paul
And we want answers to them all.
But mostly we all want to know
The Blue Box secrets please!
We know there is a nurse’s dress.
The rest we’re always trying to guess.
Don’t keep us in suspenders with
A cryptic, crafty tease.

What will your next adventure be?
We really cannot wait to see.
Will you meet Harold, Madge and
Mrs Mangel on the way?
Perhaps a twin who’s named Alessi?
Careful Paul, this could get messy.
We’re not sure this time hop really
Makes a better day!
