getting a little rusty

entry picture

I don’t get out much

these days

 - not like I should.


everyone tells me

that I ought to make more of an effort

at my age

 - you’re only young once

so they say


but I tell you,

it’s not easy

hopping on a bus

in an iron lung.

Hi Banksy.

Thanks for a fun one. You've used a pic of one of Anthony Gormley's iron men in his 'Another Place' installation on Crosby beach. I live right by the beach. They are indeed getting rusty, and those further out are suffering from barnacles and seaweed, poor things. The driver wouldn't let them on a bus in the state they're in. They're better where they are - late on an evening at this time of year they can look stunning against the big sunsets we get.
