Seven Different Ways Of Walking - Poem by Mark Heathcote

It, could well be somewhat like s.e.x
People prefer to walk in seven different ways.
Forward & backwards
Up & down, side to side.

Oh and the penultimate, round & round
However, have you figured out the seventh yet?
Yep, that’s right spacewalking upside down
“Get out of here you naughty silly circus clown”.

Wouldn’t it be good though to leave this world?
A better place than we found, it
And join on our ways that pearly string of lights
Do you see starry highways, long distant nights?

I’ve a lazy drooling mouth;
It says come and gets me.
Come and eat me, I love your curling tongue
I love your two big eyelashes batting at me.

From here-on-in we’ll leave no further footprints …
