Harbourwalk Poem W221

Yacht owning paupers –
Spent all their money on yacht –
Poor for rest of life –
Or they were poor but saved to
Look rich for a day or two

Notes to this poem…

They didn’t look the part of big yacht people one bit.

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.
