It is easy to lose concentration these days What with Hockey, Football and Soccer All on at the same time (Maybe there is possibly also snooker and table tennis somewhere) But it is Juvenal who said it best with his Panem et Circenses At least it is a time when we can forget about our troubles for a while.

Gone.

The world cup Opens up in an open air prison Where possibly the inhabitants do not see it as such But I wonder how many of its Leaders who have all the $$$ means Occasionnally fly out to countries with more lenient views Where they can enjoy wine, women (or men) and songs....
The old lady, fashionably dressed as usual Sat in her Queen Anne chair In the comfort of her sun-filled verrière, The House and Garden open on her lap And surrounded by her precious loves From that Dracoena Limelight And a large Monstera Deliciosa In one corner on her left A Philodendron Heartleaf And a Spathiphyllum ''Peace Lily'' On a table at her far right Uncared for for a certain while Wilted and dead Just as she was And finally at peace.
In her dream It was such a hot and humid day in August As she lay in her bed, asleep, Body enjoying the silk sheets yet unaware And caught in a beautiful, cold, and snowy December day with high expectations Of trips to the cabin, warm fires That is when she woke up in a cold sweat Because Christmas was sooooo close And her shopping not even begun.
