Altered Images

I wonder why, I wonder when

Our world will be turned upside down

With boxes packed and things moved round

The creatures staring without sound

They wonder, too, of me and you.

 

I wonder when, I wonder why

Things change about us by and by

Boxes unpacked and items set

In places which we might forget

We wonder, too, of things we do.

 

When is the now, Why is the wonder

Couples torn and ripped asunder

New loves come and take their place

Where briefly there was empty space

Wondrous gifts which we behold.

 

Why? Because of items moving

When? Next Saturday, of our choosing

We’ve tidied up and made some room

Rosewood dresser, table soon

Chinese altar, all will grace our fold.

 

 

NB: ‘Couple’s torn and ripped asunder’. An armchair had to go!
