Title: B.O.G.O.F
Post by: *Lorraine* on October 17, 2006, 01:19:42 PM
I should have been born in Malawi
Instead of Camberley.
I could have been a celebrity
A Ritchie or a Jolie.
A symbol of their charity
Papped for the world to see.
Twins, my brother and me,
Buy One Get One Free

Hi Sharon

No I'm not a twin, just a bit of artistic licence.  I wanted to highlight the whole 'adoption/babies for sale' thing that seems to fill the news at the mo.
