I Am a Wishing Well – Written Wednesday 28th September 2022 (Aged 47)

I Am a Wishing Well

i am a wishing well
into which i fall
or throw pennies into
or one to which i answer my own call
i do tumble,
right down the well
everyone has a reason
perhaps we are all victims of kiss and tell
this day,
now, here and present
i try to find my way
it amazes me that when i meet old friends
we still find new things to say
that is why i am here
and this is why i am a wishing well
you may ask how deep do i go
well, the truth is,
i just do not know
they all want something of me
that is why i often put on a variety show
and try to do my best
but i know my trademark song and dance
garners little respect
i know i do stumble
and i know i sometimes fall
i fall straight down the well
i know i am caught up in a special call
that is why i am a wishing well
