When Convention Takes a Hike

When Convention Takes a Hike


I sense your hesitation

I hear your silent frown

Immune I am to most of this

Feet firmly on the ground


You asked was I a writer?

What did I write about?

Rhyme, but good, I did reply

That's been my writing route


'Route' to 'route' (Americanised)

A language twist I like

Creative rhyme it will come out

When convention takes a hike


Don Matthews November 2018



As long as we allow convention to govern us

we will never make progress” (Don Matthews)

There's something I should like to mention -
You can only rebel when there is convention!
