The World of Wonders Poetry Book
Collected poems that everyone
Can see themselves reflected in.
Of flower-strewn girls, of ponies gone,
A ranch-hand wreaks the deadly sin.
Filling up the parting glass;
Of cats and men and ladies, too.
World War One and graves en masse;
Of dynamite and the Devil’s brew.
Machu Picchu and Galway Town
Whoever said Old men don’t fall?
From Java’s mud to nature’s gown
The pages here unveil them all
Minimum arrestable delinquency;
The haggis that truly took my heart;
In elegant idiosyncrasy
I take my leave, I must depart.
