Allotment Poetry

Poetry by Patrick McManus

IN HEAVY

when

she after

some months

rather cruelly

insisted

that he actually

come and help

dig and wheelbarrow

on their allotment

she then

thought it

a tad overdone

for him to arrive

in front of

all the other

plot holders

limping dressed

as a slave in

heavy chains

dragging a wagon

singing sad

heart rending

pitiful spirituals

and rather loudly

weeping - wailing

and lamenting

pitiably
