i lost my marbles (part 2)


Not much to say about this other than I lost my marbles in December and found them again in April.

This poem is about that.

i lost my marbles (part 2)

months ago i lost my marbles
all snuggled in a jar
i looked for them first high then low
searched both near and far

i couldn’t see them anywhere
it seemed that they were gone
but yesterday they reappeared
proving me dead wrong

i found them hiding with the fox
underneath some stairs
down at thumper johnny’s place
waiting for repairs

they sat there looking cool and calm
pretty as you please
adding colour to the shop
and being the bees knees

how they got there i don’t know
perhaps they hitched or hiked
couldn’t stand to be apart
from our little silver bike

soon they’ll all be coming home
– the marbles, jar and fox –
like me, they just can’t tolerate
living in a box
