Rosemary Nice - Holiday Snap


Swinging along
Out of the rain
Carrier bags
Heading for home
Mother and son
Raggedy jeans
Stuffing themselves
          With bananas.

Looking relaxed
Straight from the shop
Striding away
Anoraks flap
Hair in a mess
Chucking the skins
Recently full
          Of bananas.

Quite a surprise
Couldn’t it wait
Dinner at home
Plenty of food
Silly to carp
Leave ‘em alone
Happily scoffing
