Three T’s


Trouble, tide and time

Refuse to wait for any man

Just you wait and see

      Sounds like one of them gals I met.
      Ahh, so I'm meeting them now, am I?!

      • Neville

        Keep popping in .. and please, keep taking the pills as well Mr. O ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Doggerel Dave

        Iโ€™m not about to wait Neville - Iโ€™ve seen.
        What Iโ€™m about now is dancing, dodging and dilly dallying, but especially dodgingโ€ฆ

        • Neville

          probably a good idea DD .. the art of dodging is something that should be taught from infant school onwards methinks .. cheers you artful dodger you ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Fay Slimm.

          Ah - I like this three T take on what gets man to face his limits Nev. - - strange but it made me think of the she's and what their three T's may reveal - hope you will smile as you read my three liner stating there are risks that women too cannot deny taking ................x
          Talk of taste for tease
          when males start courting ladies
          gives ease to no man's ardour.

          • Neville

            Why thank you kindly my dear lady Fay .. and of course, I never mind or object to anything you might add to my page .. in fact, your three liner made my day .......... x

            • flyingfish

              What about Taxes? Just joking. Cheers

              • Neville

                .. If you wait on a corner long enough and wave your newspaper, or umbrella up and down like a crazy fella .. just you mark my words half a dozen will turn up back on back .. just jokin too my fine flying fishy friend ๐Ÿ™‚

                Of the three, "time" is the most consistent. Perpetually there, racing onward. Every second ticks away and we wonder, "Have I wasted another?"
                and so we write as if to be useful.
                A very concise yet haunting threat to all of us. I sit here asking myself "What's next?" - Phil A.

                • Neville

                  ... Its a good job we are in the same corner Phil ... wot with those three in the opposite one .. thanks for finding the time to checking in my friend ... Stay safe ๐Ÿ™‚

                • L. B. Mek

                  'selfless, selfish and surreal
                  three S's, that distractedly insure
                  we're all hindered, just enough'
                  to be left at the mercy
                  of your Tyrannical: T's..
                  a thought provoking shorty, thanks for the insight
                  dear poet

                  • Neville

                    .. Nowt but a pleasure L.B and all mine at that ... Cheers n truly sir ๐Ÿ™‚
