There's a lot of noise & activity going on in our bedroom up there
so I'm jumping on my chair lift and zooming straight up the stairs
My lovely wife was sorting out wardrobes & holding my emerald green 1970's flares (Very wide trousers worn in 70's)
I had a bit of a wobble, had to sit down carefully as last time I wore them I had a few scares
Warning - not to be worn on gusty, windy days as flapping & take off will most definitely occur
I ended up soaring like Eddie The Eagle and caused quite a Tredegar stir
Is it a plane they cried, Is it a big bird
No it's that boy from No17 and he's looking quite absurd
Ahhh those were the days, had a Ford Anglia - a nifty bit of kit
Also sported a handsome moustache - ooooh I thought I was IT!
Anyway thought I'd try the flares on - give myself a belly laugh
Couldn't bend to put them on, so I'm off to have a Radox muscle soak bath

The past few weeks all my texts seem to be
from my grandchildren saying - how much they miss me
Longing for the day when we can all see
kids happy faces and them running free
They'll race up the path and push open the front door
There's going to be massive hugs & kisses like never before
The simple things in life are always the best
As far as I'm concerned you can forget all the rest

I was doing some gardening the other sunny day
when a big lob worm poked his head up to say
WATCH where you're digging you silly old man
I'm really not your biggest fan
I'm wriggling along doing my own thing
when what do I hear - you shovelling!
For goodness sake will you let it be
Just sit on your bench and have some respect for me
Thank you

The people in my some of my poems will never be revealed
Trust me my lips are most definitely sealed
Like I said earlier we have lots of interesting characters in Tredegar
I was very fortunate that I didn't have to travel far
Couldn't anyway due to lockdown, couldn't go out
So in the final words of the Dragons Den cast - I'M OUT
Look after yourselves & keep safe everyone...

There's a cracking poem called "When just when the tide went out" on YouTube by Max Boyce, about the coronavirus. Sorry I don't know how to upload the link.
