An Old Child
Small thrills for an old child Peeking out early morning For the newspaper boy’s clang Disturbing the gate’s slumber Thwack! lands paper on verandah Ah! awesome sweet pungency Of fresh print on paper, But first the pullouts and fliers Dennis still thrills, Peanuts, B.C Hagar and Wizard, Archie and Bailey New antics and wisdom Crossword, sudoku and Jumble Cogs, matters grey rumble Feels like yesterday once again.
The sun has climbed an angle The news sections, oft repeated spiels Nature’s fury amid a losing battle Lost onomastics and amphiscians Stories of the challengers and heroes Villainous and those slain Gore at home, rage on road Chicanery at workplace, Strident religion, unequal commerce, Skulduggery, offence and defence,rms and the man, no end The small print slowly a blur Ever too soon bifocal upgrades Feels like it’s tomorrow too soon.
