The world goes’ by.

by Harry

I sit here on my rocker
warm cup of tea in hand
watching the world go by
deep within my thoughts
wondering how things will go
with the world to-day

people rushing off to work
not a minute to spare
no time to stop and say hello
children meandering to school
kicking a can as they go
not a care in the world
pensioners will be about later
going to collect their pensions
a quick trip by bus into town
some shopping a quick cup of tea
I see the postman, he passes us by
no bills to-day, they’ll keep
cars and vans come and go
the day gets busy now
the school football team
go into the playing field
they must have a match to-day
it will keep them fit
and out of trouble
coming to a close now
it’s getting quite
people coming home again
time to close the blinds
block the world outside
settle down for TV to-night
I suppose it will be another
night of crap programmes

  1. people rushing of (off) to work
    it’s getting quite (quiet)
    night if (of) crap programmes

    What is that old saying, ‘Same Sh*t, Just a different day.’ A marvelous poem regardless. And you must have one heck of the a view from your rocker. (@–>–)

  2. Thank you, a good view 🙂
