Daily missive for Thursday the 24th of March.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Thursday the 24th of March.

Throw away words
Bitten off at the tongue.
Manage without them
Cluttering your thoughts
With grandiose delusions,
Filling your head
With laughing gas
Whenever you touch
A nerve.
Triggering anomalous
Reactions
Out of place
And never in time.
Embarrassed hilarity
At funerals.
Inappropriate humour,
A filthy disguise
For the blank look
And pained face
Of discomfort,
When empathy
Is beyond the reach
Of a middle ground,
Rutted
With the tracks
Of old tears
That run on and on
Forever.
A picture
That tells its own story,
Regardless
Of any shameless
False sentiment
And pathetic poetic
Ballyhoo.
