A Stamps Collectors Dilemma

When I was young I wanted to save stamps
There were many things that were needed
From tweezers to watermark lamps
I began to wonder if I had been smart with what I had started

I never did like sending letters to people
The thought of licking the queen's backside put me off
Think how many people did that in general
I suffered badly with what known as the queen's backside’s cough

I was brave and persevered
People laughed and sneered
I started to save stamps from England
Then Island, Ireland the list is too long to be mentioned

Finally I stuck with my home country
Variations watermarks, inverted ones, this kept me busy
Soon I stood chin deep in my hobby
And often I looked rather bleary

Ones collection will never be completed
It's impossible, oh the pain, I'm wounded
I do have a few that makes one feel proud
I remember when I first got them I was wowed

I guess my stamp collection will keep going on
God I’m brave, I will persevere I will be strong
If you have any spare, think of dear old Jonathan
Be a sport and send them, I hope you don’t think I’m spongin’

Atlas Albums, that’s going back some, Black page albums with grease proof paper in between the pages are popular today. every time i come to England I buy blotting paper as it cost a arm and leg, blotting paper you ask, what’s that got to do with stamp collecting, some of the stamps have small signs like D or a star on the back and if you soak them to long they erase, are you Falling asleep yet? At the moment I’m sorting out penny reds, as you know they have different number plates, and each plate number has many variations like the letters in the corners the letters start from a and go up to T for example A-A . A-B and so on up to T Then there’s B-A. B-B up till T until it ends in T-T. This hobby is great if you suffer from insomnia
