Ready To Go (Rev) - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

Okay, so now what; the connection between computer
& printer’s gone - and with my mind heavier than lead
its about time to stop bread-stealing - or clandestinely
enjoying hot chocolate at work

I’m imploding with ears ringing & eyes growing weak -
time to stop overeating, to begin tackling my problems
head-on: but how to convince Scorpio that the four of
us can drive safely down to Cape Town

Through Meiringspoort on to Oudshoorn and De Rust
nestling against the picturesque mountain, inviting tired
travellers to enjoy beauty of the fairest Cape; - should
Scorpio be sad to stay home alone, he can come

Along, stay in a guesthouse, if being an extra guest is
too much for him; as long as I see mom and dad & the
kids get to know their grandparents before they pass
on due to old age - I can’t wait to pass this menacing

Milestone: convincing Scorpio we’re ready to go; - by
car, bus or aeroplane
