Was I?

Sometimes it is hard to believe that my life was once so utterly hectic….


Down there

in the hectic

trammeled on the tramway

blinkered and not blinking

Was I?


Whizzing about

in the frantic

tumble turning, length after length

all up and down, down and up



All het up

in that striving

gasping for air, gulping wine

never enough, never enough

You must be joking!


Dizzy dervish daisies

heads all a spinning

with their winning ways

and endless, trophy days

Was I?
