Not Really Poetry

I’m not a poet but I do spend a lot of time running, sometimes on my own and sometimes with my partner. This partner, although female, is not the aforementioned Princess. I guess she is my Countess, which the Princess appears to be happy about as she believes a Countess is lower in the ranking than a Princess. Anyway, as always I digress. So, yesterday I had a long run on my own because of you know what, shhh… and when I run alone the old brain comes up with all sorts of stuff. Some of it involves stuff I couldn’t put on here, give me a break I am still a bloke 😘 So in this little head of mine I wrote a poem, mainly because Saturday is Parkrun day and if you have no idea what that is? Then follow the link to a previous post, as I say I’m not a poet so I shoved a couple of photos in there to ease the pain. Hope you are all keeping safe and not yet contemplating divorce πŸ˜‰

The people may be divided

But still, they are united

Parkrun is now prohibited

Alone, we have to run – uninhibited

And ensure we give a 2-meter pass

So, Mr Corona you can kiss my ass.

  4. Nice one, Charlie. I can hear the Northern accent in the rhyming of ‘pass’ and ‘ass’. Down here in Devon it would have been ‘pass’ and ‘arse’! There is a long, rolling R in both words. Would still like to know about the bits you could not publish though.

    • Thanks, Pete. Yes when I was teaching Hampshire the students used to ask me to say Bus and Bath, then roll about laughing. I used to write on the board how they said it and explain I was the one speaking proper English.

  9. A fine, uplifting poem for difficult times. Until I saw the comments I hadn’t realised it was possible for pass and ass not to rhyme. πŸ™‚
