nil desperandum ( Thieves In Transit)

One timer

Two timer

All alone

Where’s she gone?

Where’s she gone?

Passport in a satchel

No need for luggage

To struggle with

I won’t be long

I won’t be long

Leaving at 3 a.m.

Papers say I have metal in my head

So the virus will never penetrate


Don’t know where it’s from

Don’t know where it’s from

Hats off to you sir

And a curtsey to m’lady

I’ll imbibe, ingest

Then speculate

Whether I should take the next step down

Or just let what settles in my stomach

Do its job on me

  1. Really like use of space. and how each line is complete but part. Use of repetition/refrain very expressive and effective. Lovely rhythm – I really go for rhythm!
