And here’s one I wrote earlier!

Had an extremely irritating, tiring and stressful day today!  I was travelling between Cheltenham and Bath on what should have been a simple journey but thanks to a phone that didn’t want to make outgoing calls, a complete absence of taxis at the taxi ranks in Cheltenham and problems with signalling at Bath which meant my train was diverted, it meant my so-called simple journey became an epic trek!  So the last thing I feel like doing right now is writing a poem.  Hence in best Blue Peter tradition, here’s one I wrote earlier.

Hank William’s Voice

A nasal whine that sounded like

The whistle of a train

But held such a compelling note

That made it sustain

In the hearts and minds of men and women

Like the memory of pain.
