My 'Get Up And Go' Just 'Got Up And Went'
My ‘Get Up and Go’
Just ‘Got Up and Went’
It wasn’t intentional,
It must have been Heaven sent.
I wanted to go shopping since early morn,
It did not happen, it was adjourned.
I stayed in to write several poems today,
So, I’m doing my shopping, late in the day.
I’ve not much to buy,
Just, a few bits,
Of food for the Weekend,
And my Shaver Heads.
Without them I’m lost,
I’ll grow a new beard,
I’ll not look so pretty,
Some may call me weird.
I do grow beards, when I choose to do,
They’re liked by some, but hated by few.
I must end this poem, continue on my way,
Write more tomorrow, or later today.
