Odes from yesteryear

I’ve written a post on the Shoe Box my sister gave me but I’m not ready to publish it yet.

However, I have mentioned that Mum had kept a book of poetry I’d written, so I have been transferring them to my computer files.

I remember this one, and thought it might make you smile (I was about 14)

The Martian

Hello, I’m a Martian
The little man said
With tiny green body
And overgrown head.
‘Don’t be afraid,
I won’t hurt you,
But please kindly Earthling,
Can I use your loo?’

And yes, I’m afraid some are worse than this!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
