It has been a while…

COVID 19 has taken a grip on the world. I haven’t written anything for a while – but here is a poem… Isolation



ultimately got the better of my

protracted period of procrastination.

Penned poems for the first time in an age.

and ample stocks of toilet paper    –    one shit per one sheet.


I am bored, but contented. Snug and safe in here,


I had the foresight to stock up on my favourite
