MS (8.4.1929 / Marton, Lancashire)

Poem For The Sorely Tested

Beside the telephone
a full-size, professional
real leather
punchbag
on a hefty, weighted
non-shift stand
and with a substantial
recoil

inscribed in fine gold lettering
'I am sent to try you'

that deals with
the human
and the divine
aspects
together


(For Tara)

Tee hee hee.. now if only I had one of those - relating to your previous poem and my comment - if I had one of those by my bed, hmmn, anybody could be sure that when I cried 'oh lord' it would not be a response to automated answering services..... clever M. t x
Knowing the source of this writing, I know Tara needs a punching bag right about now, and I, personally, hope she gives it a real workout in order to release her tensions! Good thought, Mr. Wisdom!
