  1585.     

The Air I Breathe

Forty Words:

Although I live on my own
I never 'go it alone'
On the wide world I rely
Or I would wither and die.
I depend on the doctor
The plumber, the builder,
I am dependency-prone
In the overreliance zone.
 
Joyce Hemsley
   
 

   
   
 

  1586.     

The Basic Essentials

Forty Word Poem:

Amelia's learning worthwhile art,
at evening class, with faithful heart.
'Domesticity' can be beautiful...
springtime cleaning ~ ever dutiful.

She will cook, without any trouble:
macaroons and raspberry crumble.
Amelia will be a wonderful wife
enjoying the simple rudiments of life.
 
Joyce Hemsley
   
 

   
   
 

  1587.     

The Big Change

Poetic Style:
Rictameter.

Climate
under control
wise men make decisions
and reduce 'carbon emissions'
the global heat is cooling down at last
as we say bye-bye to the past
this world's under control
improving the
Climate
 
Joyce Hemsley
   
 

   
   
 

  1588.     

The Birmingham Six

They came out of prison
To face the real world
Those long-suffering men,
Seventeen years they had served.
Seventeen years for a bomb crime
They did not commit...how can we
Be so wrong, when on the Jury
we sit.

I quote words from
Gilbert and Sullivan's
Trial by Jury:

'Now, jurymen, hear my advice.
All kinds of vulgar prejudice
I pray you set aside.
With stern judicial frame of mind
From bias free of every kind
This Trial must be tried'.
 
Joyce Hemsley
