Stevie Taite

(30th January 1973 / Kent, England)

Sky Fall


When ever I go running, I'm
Forever dodging poos
one eye kept on path, so none mars my running shoes.
.Experience bestowed a pearl of wisdom recently.....
So take heed, increase your speed, when you run beneath a tree.
You are sure to steer your path around a steaming doggy turd
But its much harder avoiding getting shat on by a bird!

    Very funny Stevie; and if I ever take up jogging again I'll heed your words of wisdom. Old joke= Man walking down the promenade gets pooped on his head by a seagull. He asks his friend if he has any paper to hand. His friend says, Don't be silly, it will be miles away by now (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
