Treasure Island

Charles McMullen

(24th March 1955 / Eastleigh, Hampshire.)

Constitutional


Where shall we go, what shall we do?
Something to please both us two.
We could go to the park,
Just for a lark.
Or sit in the garden
And watch the birds then.
Forget about our worries,
‘N turn a deaf ear to the lorries.

Maybe listen to our special songs,
Choose our favourites - our singalongs.
Then have a nice meal together,
Maybe outside permitting the weather.
Get that down while having a rest,
Then chat with each other ‘cos that’s the best.
Even have a little nap
Or a daily recap.

Then would you like to go for a drive?
That’s what really helps us live.
Go to a town or go to a village,
Exercise that kneecap’s cartilage.
Have a nice cup of tea,
Somewhere down by the sea.
Tell me of your thoughts and desires,
While we slowly melt our tyres.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
