A Date With Destiny: Poems 1 To 5
Author: Colin Stewart
As the King slumped off the toilet seat
he crossed the river to make his journey complete
with a mother's embrace and a smile so sweet.
Here was the woman he was dying to meet!
With the sonorous texture of a golden voice
was the thread to salvation in her choice
and the use of propaganda without being rash
"Honey it's time to take out the trash!"
Resisting a challenge from this new wave
the traditionalists remain stoic and brave
when a vanguard of pigments are poised to enslave
the primary colours and their conclave!
Hiding from the world outside
Anne Frank would not be denied
of her dignity and her pride
even though the Nazis tried.
We've been strangers from the start.
Unsure of close quarters our eyes will dart
and until the door opens when it's time to depart
you're stuck in this elevator suppressing a fart!
