Bigger Boat

“You’re gonna need a bigger boat.” [Jaws , 1985]

If you want to store all the stuff you wrote

While locked down with time to spare

All the poems you penned

When the world was unfair

And like the ark of the Bible old

It’s time the disembark or so I’m told

And just as the animals filled the land

Now our words can spread out – expand

We can share our labours face to face

WIth friends and loved ones

In public space


Padre

Poetics: “Go Ahead, Make My Day”

  1. Lots of thoughts, feelings, words, anguish, and everything in between was pouring out during our “flood time” and you’re right a bigger boat is needed! Can’t wait to see all that is published from lockdown time.
