THE EFFORTS THAT WE EACH EMPLOY
The efforts that we each employ
To write a poem you can enjoy
Involves the need to use our brains,
To bring ideas and entrain
These into words without a strain.
Read the words and get the theme
The flow of what the poems mean
Discuss the views of friends about it
And, hopefully, they will record they like it
Enough to go on our ‘Retwords’ web page.
Recently Retwords has included adverts
Inserted after our work is displayed.
Not a problem I thought, at first,
It helps to fill the web page purse,
Then reading a couple of my own texts,
And the adverts with which they were matched…
‘Loo Cleaners’ in each of the cases,
I wonder if this is a subtle comment
On all the brain power in my lament
Has it all just gone, for a swim down the Trent!
Or is it just flushed with success.
