Sylvia

There are currently twenty-three men hitchhiking across America

Seventeen climbing Mount Everest

Twelve trekking to the South Pole

Nine doing missionary work in Papua New Guinea

Six sailing down the Orinoco river

Four living with undiscovered African tribes

Two hacking through the Brazilian rain forests

And one playing the piano in a Peruvian brothel,

All trying desperately to forget about you...

 

Me, I'm writing poetry instead,

But it's not working.

Whereas I really liked it, thought it tied it up in a clever way, that I didn't see coming ?

Great little poem.

Last two lines were an anti-climax to me, and I cringed on behalf of this very clever poem, that you felt it wasn't complete in its last full line.

Your poem and I beg you to release us from them!
