Well, here we are: the last Daily Poem EVER. There will be other days and there will be other poems, but not every day. I’ve missed posting other stuff and I’ve missed the quality filter that time and contemplation offers. That said, I don’t think there’s been anything truly AWFUL posted, and there’s been some absolute blinders along the way too. I’ve also got a pretty large heap of stuff in first draft form and wayyyyy more than 365 poems to organise into something a little more permanent (but I’m not sure what yet). I hope you’ve enjoyed them, and it’s going to take me a while to get them all to disappear without leaving horrible 404 errors all over the site (something I didn’t think about when I started out!), so if you’ve just found them feel free to trawl back over the year.
Anyoldhoo, here’s the last Daily Poem, and thanks for reading – especially those lovely people who took the time to read every one or to offer a virtual thumbs up in the form of a ‘like’ along the way…
The Last Daily Poem
The Daily Poem’s done today
It’s time to put the pen away
I’ve written poems for a year
And every day I’ve put them here
I’ve shitloads now the year is done
For many days wrote more than one
Of Fishy Friday quips alone
I have more than one man should own
And so they piled, more and more
Like leaves upon a forest floor
And now it’s time to fetch the rake
– O what a bonfire they will make!
