I know, you were all expecting something political after the “great debate” the other night. But, unless this particular title came to me subconsciously, the poem itself is just about the process of life, and the alterations that occur as time goes by..

Please enjoy, and whatever you do, don’t change,,, “I love you, just the way you are”…


Ps. Read to the bottom for a bit of a chuckle..



With quickness and with drudge,

come life’s changes sure.

The former leaves no time for thought,

whilst the latter, time endures.


Not all for good, the changes be,

but, they not all, be bad.

Some with joy and speed arrive,

whilst some, weave a web, so sad.
