a hole in last thursday

there was a hole in last thursday

so bits of it leaked

into last friday

beyond last week

then into the future

yes the spillage did run

leaving traces in places

for decades to come


the secret diary of an amateur philanthropist (more stile over substance)

There's no need to even mention
divine intervention,
bother the Sybils
or call a steward's inquiry.

As without any quibbles
as one can tell from the scribbles,
this is clearly the diary
of an amateur philanthropist.

& part-time hamster-rights activist
& my-first-chemistry-set alchemist,
with all the wrong basics
but still trying to make gold.

Please don't tell a soul
