But Let Me Return (REVISED)


My discoveries: salted pumpkin seeds do
nothing for my digestive system; sticky,
warm & sweet toffee pudding makes me
happy; jungle oats keep my stomach full,
a chocolate bar to round it off – & for

Living in delight, powdered full-cream
milk, tea too hum-drum. Fighting office
heat with my coolest top – upending a
cool 2 litre water bottle over me, don’t
care for appearances, only surviving

The inevitable – but mostly I should
not have discovered a chocolate bar
hidden in my drawer, yet the thought
chocolate could disappear forever from
my diet makes me eat more and more

In fear arthritis will ruin taste in this
wonderfully sweet marvel – but let me
return to our continent’s airport reform
I am now an airport person – runways
and aerodromes the most important

Words in my vocabulary…
