Not For All The Lager In Wrexham

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 7, 2020 by dc

I will not change my mind
On all the things that I hold dear,

Not for all the lager in Wrexham,

I’ve learnt from my lessons,

I trust and love without fear,

I’m not the flotsam and jetsam
Floating and rolling like tears,

Cluttering stuttered emotions
Year after cyclical year,

Nearing nothing
But that that same old park bench,

Head stooped,

Muscles clenched;

I fizz when I need to
And keep my thirst quenched.

Forecasts

Reminiscing over
Countless big mistakes,

Falling from trees
And spoiling dinner dates,

I’ve been trying to meditate
But the voices in my head

Won’t cooperate;

I’ve been soaking up rainfall
For what seems like a lifetime,

And I’ve been waiting
For a sign,

Some kind of song
From God’s own chorus line.

If the forecasts stay gloomy
For the next decade

I’m writing prose.
