Lent poem # 16

As it’s my birthday I thought I would post one further  poem.  With due reference to Grant Shapps MP’s reference to Bingo and the budget.

 

Clickety Click

 

The days have folded themselves

beyond repair. No going back

 to a more comfortable youth

 or an age of innocent retreat,

 where the wider world

served an all-consuming desire

to discover life. 

Today the markets demand

that we bend and bow

to the embrace of essentials.
