Ahead

#fowc #octpowrimo #ahead

Amazing isn’t it ? No Looking Back on the open road

Heading for the horizon with the wind behind you

Except – look out for those hazards

A road trip might be great at speed – but you never see the

Drop down the hole that’s coming your way

Mind the Gap

#Fowc #Gap

Mind the gap - platform sign

The warning signs tell you

Mind the gap

but to some

it seems an elaborate trap

for all those important

seem to step over line

the message isn’t for them

to them – all is fine

but you find yourself making

an emergency call

as one ignores the gap

and one of them falls

The message

Urgent
a message noted urgent

was passed through the post

to the house by a postman,

eating his toast

 

it was marked up with red ink

for addressee in the house

who was working hard at the sink

quick as a mouse

 

you’ve won a prize draw

for this house in torquay

and it’ll cost you no more

than a hundred pound fee

 

but it no fool our dear reader

having read message therein

the message found a quick way

into recycle bin!
