New ditty

by Marnanel Thurman

The world is filled with frenzied folk
who say I'm incomplete
until I've played some game, or tried
their favourite thing to eat,

or read a certain book, or heard
some orchestra or band,
or spent a decade living rough
in such-and-such a land;

but most of all experiences,
the one that draws my praise
is walking round with nothing on,
on hot and sticky days.

I have been advised to remind you to look closely at the title.

Would you like to read some poetry?
Or would you like to see something wonderful?
