Limits

We think it’s time to let go
they shout,
‘get on with it’

but it’s a long way down
when you’re counting the
steps,
a second opinion is called for.

and what does the audience know?
they pay for the show and they
get what they’re given.

We’re pirates
out beyond the three mile
where we give the customs
and excise
the finger and
a big smile
a big smile
a big smile
( because good things come in threes)

time to let go?

I’ll let you know
when that time comes.
