“(Hour 9 of 12) random words”

Some placards he now shows me,

What do you make of them, said he.


These random words I survey,

And my thoughts to him I convey.

I think it would be better,

If I just put them all together.


Outside my cottage by the treeline last night,

I caught a firefly in a bottle and closed it tight.

Now I have lethargy, and the heat is strange today,

So I took off me mask and had me porridge on the way,

Shuffling despondently to my doom,

My daily morning meeting by Zoom.
