Walking away from the past

Walking away from the past

is that much harder

when your leg’s encased

in a plaster cast.

(Poem 16 – Things Past) – 25 Poems in 24 Hours


Poem 16 – 15:00 16-05-2017




Mystery

It’s a…
History

Is a…
… Thing of the past.
At last,

The time has come

My friends

To speak of sealing wax

And… um…

Other things;

Perhaps ‘apron strings’

Perhaps not.

I have a feeling that I have forgotten the words.

I do that from time to time

And, can’t recall a rhyme

That was once so familiar

And so I recite something similar

But, not the correct lines.

I should, perhaps,

Accrue

Some library fines

For the late returning of those aforementioned lines.
I had better start saving up

All of my pocket money

And ‘wrap it in a five-pound note’

As somebody once

May

Or may not

Have wrote.
