An Observer Am I

Here are some people I'd like you to meet, Various characters who live down our street. First there's old Alf, the gardener supreme I've never seen a lawn so lush or so green. Then there is Elsie, how she likes to chatter Any subject you like, she'll have a natter. There's secretive Steve, he peeps through his blinds I often wonder what lurks in his mind. Now on to Sarah, the voluptuous vamp Quite a contradiction, for her husband's quite camp. John on the corner is fixing his car, He works on it daily, but it doesn't get far. Old Margaret bless her, has a house full of cats And a collection, of the world's weirdest hats. Desmond the cyclist you just have to see, All rigged out in lycra, he's seventy three! Thomas our giant, six foot ten it's said A rumour went round there was snow his head. Then there is me, an observer am I I just love to watch, as life passes by. Entry for STANDARD CONTEST 163,any form,any,theme, Up to a max of 20 lines Poetry Contest Sponsored by Brian Strand. 18/1/19. Placed =1st.

Real fine write Gary, this is a real good observant piece so so penned. It can be so interesting just to watch people go by in the street or in the park as we're all so different. Have a great weekend, Gordon
