Conventional Shoulders


Contrary to conventional wisdom
Wisdom is seldom conventional
If anything wisdom is hard earned
Trust me I earned my wrinkles
White hair and bent back
And definitely not by being conventional
The results however is patience
Patience with those that try me
By pounding their youthful exuberance
On my tired conventional shoulders

    Patience with those that try me
    By pounding their youthful exuberance
    On my tired conventional shoulders
    A beautiful way to deal with their 'youthful exuberance'! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
