Joe Hughes Poems
Comments about Joe Hughes
I am a fresh blown bubble,
Just born with lots of care.
I'm undecided if I'll burst
Or fly into the air.
I'm yellow, blue, some red and green
Six inches is my size.
I hover round the patio
But the sky is still my prize.
I've almost hit a garden chair,
I've just skimmed past a fence.
I've cleared some hedges and a shed,
I wobble as I dance.
And now I'm soaring, Oh! so high,
I never will come down.
I've cleared the eaves of houses
And I'm heading into town!
Goodbye young child way down below,
The world now lies in ...
From the moment of my coming,
to the moment that I die,
I've been registered and tabulated
to make sure I'm not a lie.
I've been fingerprinted, indexed,
photographed and even drawn.
I've been phoned and faxed and texted
from each dusk to early dawn.
