Day 36: An old friend or two

Oh no!

Quick!

Write something before you sleep

And fulfil your ridiculous task

You are no Hercules

But one busy

Fraught

Mummy figure

Who fears that the day goes by

And there was nothing to write about

I played farms with the toddler today

Building fences and stocking fields

With pigs and sheep and calves

Made of plastic

I finished the third book since lockdown

And made new friends on Facebook

I made pancakes

Yesterday I made bread with yeast

Three years’ out of date

Not even the chickens would eat it

I have chosen an old teenage favourite to read

I am tired of books that tell me what to do

I need an old friend sometimes

So I have chosen Merlin

Arthur

Ambrosius

Uther

To see if by the umpteenth reading they chose a different path
