Poem after poem after poem
But a poem is not the way out.
Money is depleting
Soon I’ll be without.

How will I manage to live then
What will become of us all?
To write a poem is to do nothing
When the writing is on the wall.

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
