Broken Pump and Motor

Broken Pump and Motor

Broken and hissing loud and clear,
ruptured leaking
out the side of the pump.

Keep with the pressure and the glue.
Everything dry
neglected now it’s seeping.

Poor Charlie is left high and dry
undone, forlorn,
me and his burrow.

Poor Charlie, poor solider.
And then he’s gone
neglected now he’s sweeping.

Down in the dust pit, planning
meet there. Inside
over the fountain by the rocks.

The farmer unstuck it and set it
on top of the
river bank and left if it to dry.

Hour twenty, 4 am
Broken Pump and Motor
(form Acrostic/Triversen )
Charlie the Mayfly.
