Non-Religious Wedding Readings: Part 4


If you are still looking for that perfect reading for any kind of wedding, religious or otherwise, we have been feeding you many over the past two years. But we know that the ones we have found so far won’t be everyone’s cup of tea so we are continuing to seek out more favourite readings so that you don’t have to. Today I have a cute and funny poem by Hovis Presley for you.

I rely on you

I rely on you
like a Skoda needs suspension
like the aged need a pension
like a trampoline needs tension
like a bungee jump needs apprehension
I rely on you
like a camera needs a shutter
like a gambler needs a flutter
like a golfer needs a putter
like a buttered scone involves some butter
I rely on you
like an acrobat needs ice cool nerve
like a hairpin needs a drastic curve
like an HGV needs endless derv
like an outside left needs a body swerve
I rely on you
like a handyman needs pliers
like an auctioneer needs buyers
like a laundromat needs driers
like The Good Life needed Richard Briers
I rely on you
like a water vole needs water
like a brick outhouse needs mortar
like a lemming to the slaughter
Ryan’s just Ryan without his daughter
I rely on you
