In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “In Due Time.”
Isn’t that the question uppermost,
in my mind,
Where do we go from here?
Aren’t we done yet?
Haven’t we finished?
When can we begin again?

A series of deadlines.
A series of rushes,
A series of misses.
And a series of no real answers.
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Object of My Dejection.”

Was not that he had nothing to do.

But would not be compensated for any.

To love the things he was paid for,
He learnt to love the art of work.
