The Poetry Place

A flurry of activity - a couple of rhymes came along easily:

Anxious though you are to get from a to b

A 50 mile and hour limit / restraint / restriction tames us all

All are made equal

Punto and Porsche

And the rear of Eddie’s truck is all you see


But the next section is going to need a lot more work:


Beyond the hills of earth

You glimpse the fields

You imagine the welcoming that awaits

But here are pipes and cranes and dumper trucks

Miles of cones, cement

All this to satisfy our need

To be somewhere else instead of where we are
