Open Will - Poem by Douglas Scotney

I attribute this poem
to my old uncle Will,
uncle Open Will.

The deep Good Friday calm
of Adelaide,
that day's deep still
(some say bore) ,
is to be no more:

Liquor stores will be able to open,
therefore open will.

Topic(s) of this poem: alcohol, family, good friday, name


Poet's Notes about The Poem

news of Nov 14 2017. Fake?
Mother's maiden name, no faking, truly was Will.
