One Stanza Poem O183

Why is the right –
Still called the right?
When it is wrong –
And has been wrong –
On so many things –
For so long?

One Stanza Poem O182

Remembering those who fought or died –
In the war from where –
My family and I had to flee –
And remembering those who fought or died –
In the wars for where –
My family and I could be free –
A sincere thank you from me

One Stanza Poem O181

It is nice –
To be considered for love –
Even if ten years late –
But I’ll pass –
Not so much for the slight –
As the lack of insight

I wish that
Nova Scotian women –
Would give me a tenth
Of a chance –
They give to local men –
When it came to romance

Today I learned some
Fashion sense about –
The five types of bums –
And the underwear
That best cover them

Will I still write poems on the ferry –
After the bridge redecking’s done?
Probably –
But not very many

Sun burned and pure –
Dirty and clean –

Looks quite similar –
To the mångata

Cruise Poem C33

It’ll be hard to get used to –
The world around me being still –
After this cruise will be through –
When I’ll be sitting, standing or lying still –
And the world around me will be, too
