Skating Poem S043

Some people prefer
Their fashion to be classic –
Rather than drastic –
Bombastic or Jurassic –
But it’s not what I prefer

Notes to this poem…

Some friends and relatives wanted double fleece toques and mittens I had designed and made for myself, but they wouldn’t let me design them, insisting on one colour, and not even allowing for an interesting or exciting colours in some cases. Those are the type of people I’m talking about here. 🙂

I made them for these people, by the way, for the sake of familial love and friendship. 🙂

Probably would have been a better and funner poem if I had stopped at Jurassic, but I was that close to a tanka so I made one out of it.

The S-series poems were composed while I was out skating on the Halifax Emera Skating Oval, to squeeze in writing time in a life that is always getting busier.
