In a hum-drum

In a hum-drum

I’m feeling fits and starts of flatness in a wiped-out way, a hum-drum of a hot and bothered using words of dismay . You see there’s nothing on the television and it’s Baltic out there, I woulda went a’walkin’ but there’s a blowin’ a hooley in the air . So as I sit on my sofa with my phone in my hand I find myself writing negativity and that’s a thing I cannot stand . Yes I appologise in advance if this verse gets any worse, but I think I need a remedy and there isn’t a nurse

I’m in a detatchment of the doldrums within a dullness of distaste . Life is for living but I am bored what a waste!! Well I have myself a lie down with my blanket up to my shoulder, a catnap thru the daytime is what’s needed when one’s older . Then I feel a sensation down below that’s not half annoying me so I get myself to the toliet and I have a pee. Eeh what a nuisance when I was just getting comfy, now I shall have to start all over again dam it now I am getting grumpy . I look out my window and the light is fading fast, there’s some hardy hikers with there backpacks on a mission marching past . They will be on their last leg from walking up the hills, I bet they are glad to be on flat land again with their cheeks so chilled

Did I tell you before when I started scribbling this little letter, how I was feeling fed-up today? Well right now I’m much better . You see I had nothing else to do but to use my imagination which is a life line sometimes amidst my mindfulness of fascination . Yet I didn’t fancy fiction so I just wrote it how it is and once I got started well my words went down like a whizz . So I thank you very much if you have read this far, you really are incredible for reading my stuff, you are a star . Whilst I hope my honest poem has given you a little chuckle, I could waffle on allnight and then this would be muckle . Ay all this typing has given me a thirst so before I say tata for now. I’ll put the kettle on first . Right my cup of tea is brewing in the pot so cheerio my readers. That is my lot!!!
