One Poem by Edward Alport

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

His and Mine

Bored. Bored. God, I’m bored.
The weather is filthy and
I’ve nothing to do.
The rain has hidden
The beautiful scenery.
What shall I paint next?

*

My bedroom is not
Tidy enough to merit
Immortality.
I have no washstand,
No matching chairs, or perhaps
It’s the same chair twice.

 

Edward is a lecturer and writer, mostly on business and politics. He often posts twittaku (double haiku in 140 characters) on Twitter, plus the occasional political limerick.
