After 65 poems, I’ve run out of the building wrap I’ve been writing them on. I’m amazed it’s lasted as long as it did—who would have thought the builders would throw away that much useful material?
In preparation for the exhaustion of my construction waste supply, I’ve been repurposing some magnet boards I made years ago for Bugmobile programmes. I now have a pair of chalkboards that I’ll attach to my makeshift fence out front. Now as long as my chalk holds out …
I’ve finished off the very last scrap
Of discarded building wrap.
You might hope that I am done—
More lousy verse won’t see the sun.
But you know what they always say—
Where there’s will there’s a way.
Tomorrow’s verse won’t look the same
But it’ll be just as lame.
