Tomorrow says Wait and See

Wait started asking Why?

See Here asks When?

What asks Who Knows?

Not Sure says Why ask?

Now Then requests stop asking

We are doing all right.

Faith says Keep

You're Dead Meat

Strapped up tight

bandit style white mask

blue sweaty gloves

keeping safe distance

 

Extremely upset Granny

flying into wild rage

violent ferocious attack

solid walking stick

 

Next time you

wait outside the bathroom

dressed like that

you're dead meat!

Pensioner on the war-path

Why are You not Wearing Your Scarf ?

Too tight

Neck complaining

feeling warm

Body warning

 

Taking off

hanging loose

draping over

comfortable chair

 

Speak Easy

night ended

homeward bound

forgetting scarf

 

Both Neck

and Body

said together

Never mind

 

Only when

freezing cold

antarctic wind

they say

 

Why are

You not - - -

Wearing your scarf ?

hanging loose

A Tall Glass of Yesterday

Bottled up tight

blanked out regrets

bitter taste

hard to swallow

that lingers longer

than it should

dark memories

stand tall again.
