Daily missive for Friday the 12th of July~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Friday the 12th of July

Rolled gold
Haystacks
Big fat bales
Piled high
In dry fields
Ankle deep with
Needlepoint stalks
Easily reconfigured
Into battlements
Hideouts
Enemy entrenchments
Sometimes they caught fire
Nobody ever owned up
The brigade was called
Hoses unrolled
A snaking
Monty Python
Stretched tight
Barely reaching
We watched from a distance
Just wait until dad
Gets home
Is what we were told
As the fire caught hold
The red-faced farmer raged
His pink eyes blazed
A bull-headed man
With a grudge
All I know is
When he fired a gun
He made us run
More times than I would
Care to mention
