A Typical Day

A Typical Day

A Poem by Patches I'm not so new anymore.
"

A typical day in Central England circa the early 13th century A.D.

"
The sheriff is in the vestibule
Counting Prince John's money.

His wife is in the kitchen
eating bread and honey.

Robin’s in Sherwood
Doing his archery thing.

While Alan-a-Dale strums his mandolin
Getting ready to sing.

Marion’s in the summer sun
Getting a golden tan.

Friar Tuck sits by the board
Quaffing ale, while swinging a fan.

Will Scarlett’s changed his doublet
To the muted Lincoln green.

While Much the Miller’s son
Sits alone and dreams.

And Little Jon?
Why Little Jon is sitting in the john.

It’s a typical day around Nottingham.
the peasants are plowing a field.

While the sheriff’s men and
men-at- arms shuffle cards and deal.


"A poet, when he writes, is like a lover in his lady's arms----all seems true you understand, that's half the joy of writing". From the play Cyrano DE Bergerac by Edmound Rostand
