Poetry by Moongoole Blog

We concluded our talk and decided
To work in some order,
So that if,
In future dialogues,
We should be reduced
To screaming
Abuse
We would choose reverse,
Having consulted
Each other first.
Or if blows were thrown upon
Proceedings then
We would refuse to meet
Them with our own,
And martyrdom
Would show us
The error of our ways.
And if,
God forbid,
It came to plates,
And knocking crockery
Across each other’s brow,
Then we agreed to each pick a
Piece,
Place it in the
Post,
And see,
Upon delivery,
Whose saucer was most
Complete,
And therefore win the heat.
How sensible men and women are
When there is 3,000 miles
Worth of swimming
Between them.
