Midday in the midst of tiffin
Porridge a soupcon, with muffin

The doorbell is giving out loud rings
An unsolicited wide-open missive

Telling of a pink slip
A stiff upper lip, placid

Curving from the window of the derelict attic
He haunts back a figure of a forlorn figure, a don quixotic

Casting a quizzical squint
He  sees a lollipop on the pedestrian in the alley,

A motorbike rider in a skid lid,
Like a filbert inside with a noggin,

Across a tuk-tuk vendue, a viator rara avis,
Like a fig left alone on a hottentot twig

Hamlet without the prince
But he keeps feeling sanguine

He feels like two town but twin
With bonanza benison in nescience

Blind curtain never gives the light in
Trouble is replaced with double blessing

Sometimes we need to take away the cuisine
When we are not permitted to eat in

With today going adrift
Deo gratias, there will be always another day to begin

Carpe Diem, Never give in
Life is ongoing but time is passing

Let’s give it a big fillip
Two unlike poles never will split
