Cast aside troubles and cast aside strife

treat each day as the last of your life

it may not be so but don’t get uptight

one day you’ll be sure to get it right.

    Hi Michael,

    A great write and very relevant with all that's going on around us with Covid.

    Keep writing ✍ and safe during lockdown.

    Good write M.
    It will be the last day of our life if there is a fire. We'll never get out. The Fire Door has to be kept closed at all times. Doh!
    I smashed a bus window. It said 'In case of fire, break window'. I told them 'Well, it's "just in case" there is a fire on the bus. Best smash the window to be on the safe side! Make sense to me. lol.

      In case of fire - where do you get these cases?
      From the luggage shop or is it closed thanks to lockdown?

      • orchidee

        Ah yes cases. And is the Fire Door locked down - or locked up?! Lemme out!

        She stood on the bridge at midnight
        looking awful and feeling woosey
        a tramp shuffled by and took her home
        well at this hour you can't be choosey

        Mary had a poetic muse
        who gave her rhymes uncanny
        but there was, she found
        a price to pay
        as he slipped inside her .........

        On sunday rhymes are hard to find
        i find my mind goes blank
        with so much time upon ones hands
        might as well just have a ........

        I couldn't come up with anything along the lines of your superb piece today so i offer you three poetic scribbles instead.

          Always love your 'response writes'
          Mind you - I'm still trying to work out the missing words. 🤔🤔
