This is a Modern World – Written Thursday 1st July 2021 (Aged 46)

This is a Modern World

i got up from my chair
i took my cup into the kitchen
rinsed it,
put it on the draining board
and quietly left
this is a modern world
and integrity is bereft
i find things in me
which seem to fit
this is a modern world
some of it will not be missed
i have closed a door
and made sure it is locked
and as i left
i glanced briefly at a clock
this is a modern world
some of it however, can just stop
this is a modern world
where we are tempted
to step into the arena
and be modern day gladiators
but this is a modern world
and this modern world
needs modern day educators
