THE SMILE POEMS #50 (AND FINAL) - MAKING THE EFFORT

 I have a portfolio of features, reviews, poetry and short fiction published in all sorts of places - Belfast Telegraph, Tribune, Ireland's Own, Dalhousie Review, Fairlight Books, Reader's Digest, Reality, Lapwing Poetry, Ink, Sweat & Tears, Spillwords, Dear Reader, Amethyst Review, Black Bough, to name a selection.  Oh, and the odd BBC radio contribution. I wrote books on retailing, on dealing with job losses and a biography of film star Stephen Boyd.


This is a series of (hopefully) funny poems from hundreds I've written over the years (inspired by the likes of Spike Milligan and Roger McGough) to provoke a smile in these odd times.

MAKING THE EFFORT

 

No road 

Too long to walk,

No river 

Too wide to swim,

No mountain 

Too high to climb,

No building 

Too tall to abseil,

No rapids

Too rough to ride,

No bungee

Too scary to jump,

No slopes

Too snowy to ski

-       That’s how much you mean to me.

But, to be honest, I’m knackered.
