I write what I feel…

Bumper Bash



Crawling like a shongololo*

Nose to tail in traffic snarl,

A to B, lands on C,

Mish-mash, car crash,

Bumper bash.

Backseat children start to cry,

‘Okay, okay, keep calm,’ say I,

‘Dry your eyes, we’re all okay,

We’ll brave the crowds another day.’

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx
