Relationship Rules?


Cards lay face up on a table not a wall,
Already shuffled and in a neat pile,
Hands come to seperate stroke and caress,
Until a new order is found and the game begins,

The rule book is there but will it be used,
Is it a game if it is not,
Can rules be rewritten as play goes along,
Or will the players stop the game,
That was not a game in the first place,
Because the rules were never used,

Will then the cards be put back into a neat pile,
Back up on a table,
Or back up on a wall will they go__

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
