Harbourwalk Poem W213

If you’re in your prime –
Better throw the bums a buck
And a dime these days

Notes to this poem…

Inflation on that famous Bob Dylan song, Like a Rolling Stone, with the lines

Once upon a time you dressed so fine
You threw the bums a dime in your prime

The W-series poems comprise mostly of haiku or tanka composed during walks I took on the portion of Halifax’s waterfront known as the Harbourwalk, during the warmer months of 2018 & 2019, when the Seabridge was in place.
