Poyetry (sic)

Haven’t done a poyum in ages

no lovelorn laments

Rants and cross rages

Came up with some thoughts

Just a moment ago

Then I blinked and forgot…


maybe it’s good that lately

life has not given me much

to complain aboutor be driven

perhaps it is good to be sitting content

thinking I must enliven

where once upon time I would have

angsted on scansion

I lean my recliner

In my mini mansion

this voice to text gizmo

is proving quite handy

Though I just can say ‘sit’

and it usually writes something to do with sex instead but Ive forgotten about all that (so I lie, I can remember the best bits, I’m not senile) and I can’t think of anything to rhyme with sex so Ill go and have a coffee. Darn you, predictive text!

Note: poyum and poyetry are the correct Scottish pronunciations. Trust me.
