My heart has made its mind up
And I'm afraid it's you.
Whatever you've got lined up,
My heart has made its mind up
And if you can't be signed up
This year, next year will do.
My heart has made its mind up
And I'm afraid it's you.

Wendy Cope,
from Two Cures for Love: 
Selected Poems 1979-2006

When Wendy Cope's debut collection of poems, Making Cocoa for Kingsley Amis, appeared in 1986, it was a publishing sensation, winning widespread critical praise and eventually selling 200,000 copies.  Her subsequent books have received a similarly warm reception.  She is generally acknowledged to be one of the very best and cleverest poets of our time and the funniest, most spot-on parodist in English since Max Beerbohm.
