The sky's the limit

Poem | Jody's Notes


It rains.

It snows.

It’s sunny.

But the timing is invariably off.

At first we talk back reasonably,

spit here and there

to demonstrate how it should go,

bang on a few drums

to give it a feel for the rhythm.

It doesn’t listen.

So we look around

for something a bit more dramatic,

pile up a few stacks of quiet rock,

dress up a daughter or two

in the latest herbs and spices,

cook the result up top.

It still doesn’t listen.
