Mummy took us to the zoo
she hoped it wouldn’t bore us
In truth I think that mummy knew
we’d see a Brontosaurus

I stroked a small Triceratops

I fed him all my chocolate drops
the keeper eyed me with scorn

Experiencing life in segments
Having sublimely...Read More

And life knocks you three steps back.

No matter how hard you try.
Some days are worse than others,
And it...Read More
