You’ll be the first to know


I dream of constant sleepless nights

of endless noise and filfth and tears

of never having any peace

of swapping calm for endless fears.


Of babbling like an endless stream

of nonsense tripe and total tosh.

Of broken joys and treasures lost

and living caged as in a zoo.


Of debt and worries mounting high

horizon shrunken to a cot.

Career in tatters, all is gone

except a screaming red faced tot.


Your smiling face I have to cheer.

I know you mean well, yes I do.

A baby? In another year.

I’ll let you know when it is due.
