Just use your own brains

if you have one

otherwise others will implant

their sillier one’s on yours

you will simply twiddle your thumbs.

if you succeed they will yell

see what I did you tell

but if you fail

they will say idiot

why did you not use yours

at that time

I had a very high
did not take a small job
as I had held higher ones

then for three decades

I have been sitting

daily at my window

composing poetry
who will read me
you will not

is a random thought

I am now often

without a cuppa tea caught

some friends have pity and say
come over
when I ask when

all say some day
but just give a tinkle

but to date
no one has responded

I tinkle and twinkle

so friends take care
is a good pass time

only be aware
no one helps anyone

no hubby
no wifey

just use your brains

only if you have any

Lonelyness is a terrible feeling, but you can also be alone even when you are not, I have a friend who's recovering from covid, she had her young daughter with her, but I suspect she never felt more alone. I hear what you're saying, makes me sad to think of you, or indeed anyone who may be alone. This is so true to so many, take care my friend

Thank you...Teddy
